The presence of ICAD is highly predictive of stroke. However, its prevalence may be underestimated due to the lack of an appropriate diagnostic tool to depict the intracranial vessel wall. We have developed a 3-dimensional high resolution MRI technique that can identify ICAD and provide highly reliable wall measurements of intracranial vessels. This has been implemented in an NIH-funded population-based study, the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Neurocognitive Study (ARIC-NCS), to investigate ICAD prevalence and factors that lead to its development and stroke. The focus of Dr. Qiao’s talk is to describe methods, reliability and descriptive statistics of MRI measurements of Intracranial Atherosclerosis in ARIC Neurocognitive Study.
Brief CV of Dr. Ye Qiao:
Dr. Ye Qiao received her Bachelor degree in medicine from Baotou Medical College, Master degree in Biomedical Engineering from Beijing University of Technology and Doctorate degree in Biophysics from Boston University. Dr. Qiao has extensive experience in the evaluation and analysis of large cohort studies, including the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) and the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study. Her current research focuses on developing and applying MRI vessel wall imaging to gain insight into the development, prevention and treatment of intracranial atherosclerosis. She has been co-investigator of several NIH-funded projects and is a current NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) recipient.
