Abstract

Since several years multi-infarct disease has been recognized as a special form of cerebrovascular disease (CVD) which may lead to dementia of the vascular type (multi-infarct-dementia). Diagnosis of multi-infarct dementia (MID) is based on various parameters such as computerized tomography (CT), measurements of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), evaluation of vascular risk factors (RF) and neuropsychological rating scales.
