BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Previous reports on the frequency, extent, and clinical correlates of white matter hyperintensities (WMHIs) have been contradictory. The purpose of this study was to test whether part of this variation could be explained by the different properties of the visual WMHI rating scales used. METHODS The periventricular (PVHIs) and deep… CONTINUE READING
