Background. Gradient-echo T2*-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (T2*-weighted MRI) is highly sensitive for detecting cerebral microbleeds (CMBs). CMBs have been reported to be a risk factor for future cerebrovascular events and a marker of cerebral small vessel disease in the general population. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The relationship between CKD and CMBs, which has not been clarified to date, is examined.

    The intravenous administration of a standard dose of conventional gadolinium-based contrast agents produces higher contrast between the tumor and normal brain at 3.0 Tesla (T) than at 1.5 T, which allows reducing the dose to half of the standard one to produce similar contrast at 3.0 T compared...
