White matter hyperintensities (WMH) are areas of increased signal on T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), including fluid attenuated inverse recovery sequences. Total and regional WMH burden (i.e., volume or severity) has been associated with myriad cognitive, neurological, and psychiatric conditions among older adults. In the current report, we(More)
OBJECTIVE To review the construct of MRI-defined vascular depression and to examine the substantive and methodological issues that bear on its validity as a distinct subtype of depression in late life. DESIGN Literature review. RESULTS We identified three areas that are critical to establishing the validity of MRI-defined vascular depression: (1)(More)
BACKGROUND MRI signal hyperintensities predict poor remission to antidepressant treatment. Previous studies using volumetrics in outpatient samples have relied on total lesion volume. The purpose of this study was to test whether remission from geriatric depression depends on lesion volume by region of interest (ROI). METHOD Thirty-eight patients received(More)
OBJECTIVE Multiple diagnostic criteria have been used to define vascular depression (VD). As a result, there are discrepancies in the clinical characteristics that have been established for the illness. The aim of this study was twofold. First, we used empirically established diagnostic criteria to determine the clinical characteristics of magnetic(More)
