Q:
Can a MRI confirm a diagnosis of CADASIL?

A:

A MRI Alone Cannot Confirm CADASIL. The magnetic resonance scan (MRI) is usually performed and shows characteristic appearances with abnormalities in the deeper parts of the brain or white matter,  particularly in the temporal lobe poles.  This can be repeated to determine whether the disease is progressing.
