Cardiovascular disease increases the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD), and growing evidence suggests an involvement of cerebrovascular pathology in AD. It was found that hypoperfusion, reduced blood volume, and elevated CTH in the parietal and frontal cortices of pAD-patients compared to controls, while only the precuneus showed focal cortical atrophy.
