Correlation between cortical superficial siderosis and bleeding risk in cerebral amyloid angiopathy


  • The presence and severity of cortical superficial siderosis (cSS) in those with symptomatic cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is an independent predictor of future intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).

Why this matters

    This study indicates that T2*-weighted MRI may be useful to identify those with CAA who are at an elevated risk for ICH and to tailor treatment plans accordingly.
