WHITE MATTER HYPERINTENSITIES AND COGNITIVE DECLINE IN FRONTO-TEMPORAL DEMENTIA VARIANTS

      White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) are areas of increased signal on FLAIR images which indicate the presence of small-vessel disease in the brain. They are associated with increased cognitive deficits in aging as well as Alzheimer’s disease. We investigated the differences in WMH burden between variants of frontotemporal dementia (i.e. behavioral, semantic, and progressive non-fluent aphasia abbreviated as bv-FTD, sv-FTD, and pnfa-FTD) and their relation to cognitive decline.
