1990) also used both imaging techniques but failed to find any relation with MMSE-scores, this could be due to their small sample sizes. , 1996). , 1995) no relation was found with WMC. This was similar for healthy subjects and for dementia patients. DeCarli and coworkers used was a composite score of verbal and performance scaled scores of the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS) (Wechsler, 1955) as a measure of general intelligence. They used this subset instead of the complete W AIS to avoid confounding by age.

Therefore, the use of planimetric measurement techniques would not seem to provide a complete solution. At first it must be attempted to group signal abnormalities according to their etiology and in regard to the extent of associated tissue destruction. Some of these insights may be gained by correlative histopathological studies. 36 F. Fazekas et al. Histopathologic correlation In many instances punctate hyperintensities of the deep and subcortical white matter (Fig. , 1991). Although both the small size of these lesions and difficulties in identifying exactly the same brain region on post-mortem sections have to be considered these negative results can be viewed in support of the predominantly "benign" nature of such MRI finding.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has dramatically increased our ability to detect morphological abnormalities in relation to aging of the brain. Among those changes are alterations of the white matter which display high signal intensity on both proton density and T2-weighted images. They may be seen in the deep and subcortical white matter or in a periventricular location.
