The authors studied 34 subjects with probable dementia of the Alzheimer type (DAT) and 28 healthy, age-matched control subjects, using a 1.5-tesla GE MRI scanner. Absolute volumes of ventricular and sulcal cerebrospinal fluid spaces and volumes, corrected for total intracranial volume, were significantly higher (P < 0.01) in the DAT group, compared to the control group. Right-left measures of hemispheric structural asymmetry were greater in the DAT group, whereas aging alone influenced brain… CONTINUE READING
