However, despite these developments in the pathophysiology of migraine, the mechanism by which it conveys an increased risk for the incidence of WMHs
, even "silent infarct-like lesions," is still unclear (16).
Shih-Pin Chen, M.D., Ph.D., from Taipei Veterans General Hospital in Taiwan, and colleagues prospectively recruited patients with RCVS (January 2010 through December 2012) from the headache center or emergency department in order to investigate the spatiotemporal distribution and pathomechanisms of WMHs
. Sixty-five patients underwent serial isotropic 3-dimension fluid-attenuated inversion recovery sequence imaging (162 images) as well as transcranial and extracranial color-coded sonography.

) surveys, " Psychological Medicine, vol.
The investigators looked at the relationship between walking at baseline and PACC decline over the study period in two multivariate models: one controlling for age, sex, and years of education, and the second for those variables plus the biomarkers of cortical WMHs
, bilateral hippocampal volume, and FDG-PET in brain regions typically affected by Alzheimer's.
 showed an age-dependent association between WMHs
, well-functioning hypertensive patients, and physical declining .
The Lesion Segmentation Tool was used to segment the WMHs
. Originally, this toolbox was developed to segment white matter lesions that are normally found in patients with multiple sclerosis .
The MRI surrogates of cSVD of interest were CMBs, SLIs, and WMHs
. Imaging results from all included patients (n = 156) were assessed by 2 raters who were blind to the clinical information.
has partnered with an entrepreneurship team of MBA students from University of Maryland's Smith School of Business to create and deliver a live webinar on “Value-Based Care Delivery,” followed by a Q&A session with Ronan and his team.
are one of the first imaging signs of CADASIL, often appearing before its clinical onset.
"Theoretically, if a Mediterranean-style diet helps prevent the formation of WMHs
, it also may decrease the incidence of cognitive decline and dementia,' says Fran Grossman, RD, CDE, a nutrition consultant and dietitian at Mount Sinai.
The study included 1,091 people, mean age 72, and found that each one-point increase in a Mediterranean diet rating score was associated with a lower volume of white matter hyperintensities (WMHs
) seen on brain MRI scans of study participants.
One of WMHs
recent developments is in the next generation of high accuracy dosing pumps.
