Lobar cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) and localized non-hemorrhage iron deposits in the basal ganglia have been associated with brain aging, vascular disease and neurodegenerative disorders. Particularly, CMBs are small lesions and require multiple neuroimaging modalities for accurate detection. Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) derived from in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is necessary to differentiate between iron content and mineralization. We set out to develop a deep learning… 
Computer-Aided Extraction of Select MRI Markers of Cerebral Small Vessel Disease: A Systematic Review
This work aimed to summarise published computer-aided methods to examine three imaging biomarkers of CSVD, namely cerebral microbleeds (CMB), dilated perivascular spaces (PVS), and lacunes of presumed vascular origin.
Automated Detection of Cerebral Microbleeds on MR images using Knowledge Distillation Framework
This work proposes a fully automated, deep learning-based, 2-step algorithm, using structural and anatomical properties of CMBs from any single input image modality for their accurate detection, which is flexible in terms of the input modality and provides comparable clusters-wise TPR and a better cluster-wise precision compared to existing state-of-the-art methods.
A Comprehensive Analysis of Deep Neural-Based Cerebral Microbleeds Detection System
The paper presents the main challenges connected with automatic cerebral microbleeds detection, its deep analysis and developed system, and carefully analysed the network predictions and proposed an algorithm for its post-processing.
MixMicrobleed: Multi-stage detection and segmentation of cerebral microbleeds
This work proposes a multi-stage approach to both microbleed detection and segmentation, where possible microbleeds locations are detected with a Mask R-CNN technique and a simple U-Net performs the final segmentation.
MixMicrobleedNet: segmentation of cerebral microbleeds using nnU-Net
Cerebral microbleeds are hypointense, small, and round or ovoid lesions [1, 2]; visible on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with gradient echo, T2*, or susceptibility weighted (SWI) imaging[3, 4, 5].


Spatial heterogeneity, links to risk factors, cognition, genetics, and atrophy
    The Brain Chart of Aging: Machine‐learning analytics reveals links between brain aging, white matter disease, amyloid burden, and cognition in the iSTAGING consortium of 10,216 harmonized MR scans
    Relationships between brain atrophy patterns of typical aging and Alzheimer's disease (AD), white matter disease, cognition, and AD neuropathology were investigated via machine learning in a large
    Association of Intensive vs Standard Blood Pressure Control With Cerebral White Matter Lesions.
    Among hypertensive adults, targeting an SBP of less than 120 mm HG, compared with less than 140 mm Hg, was significantly associated with a smaller increase in cerebral white matter lesion volume and a greater decrease in total brain volume, although the differences were small.
    The Rotterdam Scan Study
    Toward Automatic Detection of Radiation-Induced Cerebral Microbleeds Using a 3D Deep Residual Network
    Cerebral microbleeds, which are small focal hemorrhages in the brain that are prevalent in many diseases, are gaining increasing attention due to their potential as surrogate markers of disease
    White matter lesions
    The hypothesis that the appearance of WMH follows age and disease-dependent regional distribution patterns, potentially influenced by differential underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms, and possibly with a differential link to vascular and neurodegenerative changes is supported.
    MEDI+0: Morphology enabled dipole inversion with automatic uniform cerebrospinal fluid zero reference for quantitative susceptibility mapping
    To develop a quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) method with a consistent zero reference using minimal variation in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) susceptibility, data are analyzed through a probabilistic approach.
