Brain Vascular Malformation Consortium: Predictors of clinical course
New Mexico has the highest prevalence worldwide of familial cerebral cavernous malformations. This NIH-funded project includes baseline MRI of CCM patients, follow-up MRI on many, and genetic analysis, with a goal of identifying predictors of clinical course. Subprojects include developing automated analysis methods and applying MRI permeability techniques to drug trials.
