Imaging cerebral amyloid angiopathy with susceptibility-weighted imaging.

Author information

  • 1Institute for Biomedical Research, Detroit, Mich, USA.


Gradient-echo (GE) imaging is recognized as a means to detect hemorrhagic changes in cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). However, almost 25% of patients with CAA do not show microhemorrhages on T2* GE imaging. We applied a new imaging method, susceptibility weighted imaging (SWI), to evaluate the presence of microhemorrhages. In a suspected case of CAA, where cognitive effects are also present, we show that SWI is much more sensitive in detecting microhemorrhages than conventional methods.
