    ..30, 0.89, p<0.01). BBB permeability increases with normal ageing and may be an important mechanism in the initiation or worsening of cerebral microvascular disease. Further studies on the role of BBB permeability are urgently needed...

    Joanna M Wardlaw
    Division of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Edinburgh, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, UK
    Stroke 38:1250-6. 2007
    ..Early CT signs of cerebral ischemia are subtle. Little is known of which factors influence the detection of infarct signs. We compared neuroradiologists' scan readings with those of other specialists involved in the care of stroke patients...

    Psychiatry Res 171:232-41. 2009
    ..Though the extent of leakage was no greater than that of non-demented people of a similar age in this small sample, the temporal pattern differed, indicating different blood-brain-CSF compartmental kinetics...

    Vera Cvoro
    Division of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Edinburgh, Western General Hospital, UK
    Stroke 40:767-72. 2009
    ..We used spectroscopic imaging to measure N-acetyl aspartate (NAA, a marker of normal neurons) and lactate (a marker of ischemia) to compare with diffusion and perfusion values in the diffusion lesion in acute ischemic stroke...
