Correlation of cerebral small vessel disease markers and remote diffusion-weighted imaging lesions

Takeaway

  • Patients with primary intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and remote diffusion-weighted imaging lesions (R-DWILs) had a higher frequency of imaging markers for cerebral small vessel disease (cSVD), i.e. cerebral microbleeds (CMBs), white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) and lacunes, as well as a higher total burden of cSVD.

Why this matters

  • The results of this study highlight a potential role of cSVD in the formation of R-DWILs.
