Most strokes are covert and observed incidentally on brain scans, but their presence increases risk of overt stroke and dementia. Amyloid angiopathy, associated with Alzheimer Disease (AD) causes stroke, and when even small strokes coexist with AD, they lower the threshold for dementia. Diffuse ischemic white matter disease impairs executive functioning, information processing speed, and gait. Neuroimaging techniques, such as tissue segmentation, Diffusion Tensor Imaging, MR Spectroscopy… CONTINUE READING
