Imaging Biomarkers in Vascular Cognitive Impairment

Using imaging to help unravel the complex relationships between vascular disease and cognitive impairment is the outline for this presentation. Imaging metrics can be quantified and used to identify disease markers, define risk factors and evaluate effectiveness of drug treatments. Vascular complications, correlated to age, are contributing to dementia onset. Research methods and important findings are outlined at each step, helping Dr. Black to give a full picture of the current state of knowledge.
