Bilateral common carotid artery occlusion (BCCAO) has been widely used to reproduce the white matter (WM) and gray matter (GM) damage associated with chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH). This study investigated whether diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) could be used at the early stages of disease to assess brain damage induced by BCCAO. To this end, DTI, together with histological methods, was used to evaluate the progression of WM lesions and GM neurodegeneration following BCCAO. The DTI was… CONTINUE READING
