Cerebral amyloid angiography using SWI

Compared to conventional T2*-weighted imaging, a susceptibility-weighted imaging technique is very sensitive in the detection of small bleedings and vascular malformations. This case report shows that SWI is a sensitive tool for the precise assessment of CAA. His findings show that by using SWI, multiple small cortical and subcortical bleedings can be depicted in detail and can show the extent of the severity of CAA better than with conventional T2*-weighted MRI only.
