The sagittal T1-weighted images show chronic deep white matter ischemic changes. Axial T2-weighted and FLAIR show high quality brain anatomy demonstrating chronic ischemic changes and old hemorrhage / hemosiderin staining.

 

On the axial Venous BOLD (Susceptibility Weighted Imaging) image, the high quality vascular anatomy and increased sensitivity to chronic ischemic changes and old hemorrhage / hemosiderin staining are seen.

Diagnosis

Imaging appears consistent with amyloid angiopathy, no other intracranial lesions found.

Clinical impact of Ingenia 3.0T with 32-channel dS Head coil.

The 32-channel dS Head coil is allowing excellent SNR and resolution in routine clinical imaging. It enhances visualizing of the subtle anatomy of brain parenchyma, fibers and fine vascular structures.
