White matter perivascular spaces on magnetic resonance imaging: marker of cerebrovascular amyloid burden?


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We investigated the relationship between magnetic resonance imaging-visible centrum semiovale perivascular spaces (CSO-PVS), a biomarker of impaired interstitial fluid drainage, and positron emission tomography-based amyloid-β burden across a wide range of cerebrovascular amyloid deposition. METHODS: Thirty-one nondemented subjects (11 probable cerebral amyloid angiopathy patients and 10 healthy subjects≥60 years; 10 older individuals,
