  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE To determine the frequency of serious intracranial abnormalities in a healthy young male population. METHODS Cranial MRI of 2,536 healthy young males, mean age 20.5 years, all applicants for military flying duties in the German Air Force. RESULTS The authors report a variety of morphological abnormalities in the brains of a large population of healthy young males, providing data on disease prevalence. Arachnoid cysts were found in 1.7% (95% CI 1.2 to 2.3%), vascular… CONTINUE READING
