The researchers observed positive associations for higher systolic BP (SBP) and diastolic BP (DBP) at age 53 years and greater increases in SBP and DBP between ages 43 and 53 years with WMHV at age 69 to 71 years.
Researchers examined the association between Body Mass Index (BMI), waist circumference, waist to hip ratio, CT-based measures of abdominal fat, with MRI measures of total brain volume (TCBV), temporal horn volume (THV), white matter hyperintensity volume (WMHV) and brain infarcts in the middle-aged participants.
Researchers did not observe a statistically significant correlation between CT-based abdominal fat measures and THV, WMHV or BI.
