Neuroimaging advances our understanding of delirium pathophysiology and its consequences. A previous systematic review identified 12 studies (total participants N = 764, delirium cases N = 194; years 1989–2007) and found associations with white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and cerebral atrophy. Our objectives were to perform an updated systematic review of neuroimaging studies in delirium published since January 2006 and summarise the available literature on predictors, correlates or outcomes. 
Structural Brain Changes in Delirium: An Integrative Review
TLDR
This review provides insight into possible structural changes responsible for the signs and symptoms seen in patients with delirium, but more high-quality studies are needed. Expand
Delirium in acute stroke: A prospective, cross‐sectional, cohort study
TLDR
The endpoints of this study were incidence of delirium in acute stroke and the risk factors that predispose to this condition. Expand
A Systematic Review of Delirium Biomarkers and Their Alignment with the NIA‐AA Research Framework
TLDR
To identify whether delirium biomarkers aligned with the NIA‐AA research framework, a conceptual model that describes the use of diagnostic biomarkers for Alzheimerʼs disease and other related dementias (ADRD) was described. Expand
Delirium
TLDR
This Primer reviews the epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and classification of delirium as well as its management approaches and discusses future directions inDelirium research and treatment. Expand
Current Challenges in the Recognition and Management of Delirium Superimposed on Dementia
TLDR
The key management principles include prevention, identifying and treating the underlying precipitant(s), implementing multicomponent interventions to create an ideal environment for brain recovery, preventing complications, managing distress, and monitoring for resolution. Expand
Neuroimaging for delirium through the retrospectoscope
  • P. Regal
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • International journal of geriatric psychiatry
  • 2019
TLDR
In conclusion, unravelling CT/MRI findings associated with delirium from scan changes associated with aging will be difficult because Aging is associated with cerebral atrophy and white matter ischaemia and the retrospectoscope is crude. Expand
Delirium is associated with frequency band specific dysconnectivity in intrinsic connectivity networks: preliminary evidence from a large retrospective pilot case-control study
TLDR
Effect sizes for EEG connectivity and network analyses to be expected in delirium were quantified and implicates that theta band hyperconnectivity and alpha band disconnectivity may be essential mechanisms in the pathophysiology ofdelirium. Expand
New waves of delirium understanding
TLDR
Though recognised since antiquity, and now affecting at least 80 hospitalised patients out of every 500, delirium still remains on the margins of the mainstream, despite recent developments. Expand
Clinical and Neuroimaging Correlates of Post-Transplant Delirium.
TLDR
Greater incidence of delirium following HCT was associated with greater age, microvascular burden, and conditioning intensity, and pre-HCT consideration of microv vascular burden and other neuroimaging biomarkers of risk may be warranted. Expand
Clinical utility of brain computed tomography in prediction of post-stroke delirium
TLDR
CT-based indices of brain atrophy and white matter changes do not provide additional information about a risk of post-stroke delirium beyond the most important clinical predictors. Expand

Neuroimaging of Delirium
TLDR
Structural imaging studies suggest that delirium is associated with more brain atrophy and focal abnormalities, such as infarcts and white matter disruption, and functional imaging studies suggestion perfusion abnormalities and altered functional connectivity. Expand
Neuroimaging studies of delirium: a systematic review.
TLDR
The small sample sizes and other limitations of the studies identified in this review preclude drawing any clear conclusions regarding neuroimaging findings in delirium, but these studies suggest multiple avenues for future research. Expand
Delirium Superimposed on Dementia: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A systematic review of the medical literature on delirium superimposed on dementia to review studies on prevalence, associated features, outcomes, and management and stresses the importance of early recognition and prevention ofDelirium in persons with dementia. Expand
The role of neuroimaging in elucidating delirium pathophysiology.
TLDR
Despite considerable challenges in patient recruitment, study design, intersubject variability, and scanner and contrast agent availability, imaging offers great potential for the identification and clarification of pathogenic mechanisms of delirium and its long-term sequelae. Expand
Delirium and long-term cognitive impairment
TLDR
A review of studies published since Jackson's review confirmed that there is a link between delirium and LTCI, and discusses putative mechanisms and explanations. Expand
Occurrence and outcome of delirium in medical in-patients: a systematic literature review.
TLDR
Delirium is common in medical in-patients and has serious adverse effects on mortality, functional outcomes, LOS and institutionalisation. Expand
Intracranial cause of delirium: computed tomography yield and predictive factors
TLDR
This data indicates CT of the brain in delirium investigation has a low yield of identifiable causes, but the best clinical predictors of an intracranial cause ofdelirium are still unclear. Expand
Delirium in the acute phase after stroke
TLDR
Delirium occurs in almost 1 out of every 8 patients with stroke on a stroke unit and is associated with cognitive decline, infection, right-sided hemispheric stroke, anterior circulation large-vessel stroke, stroke severity, and brain atrophy. Expand
The Association of Brain MRI Characteristics and Postoperative Delirium in Cardiac Surgery Patients.
TLDR
The results suggest that cerebral atrophy may contribute to increased vulnerability for postoperative delirium, and baseline cognitive status, bypass time, and any postoperative complication may be useful in identifying cardiac surgery patients at high risk forPostoperative delIRium, who might benefit from targeted perioperative approaches to preventDelirium. Expand
Towards a predictive model for post-stroke delirium
TLDR
Higher age, metabolic disturbances, intracerebral haemorrhage and larger ischemic hemispheric strokes increase the risk of post-stroke delirium. Expand
