Medial temporal lobe atrophy is underreported and may have important clinical correlates in medical inpatients.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The diagnostic workup in dementia includes brain imaging with reading focussed on signs of cerebrovascular and neurodegenerative disease. We hypothesised that these findings may be underreported in hospital patients, where imaging is often performed to rule out obvious pathology such as haemorrhage. In this study, we review cranial computed tomography (CT) in medical inpatients for white matter changes and atrophy. Our aim was to determine the clinical relevance of such findings and to what extent they were underreported.
