1992). The H70 study used CT and only looked at moderate or severe WMC. Matsubayashi and coworkers used MRI and found a relation only if they neglected the small WMC. Taken together these studies have been interpreted as evidence for a threshold effect: a substantial amount of WMC needs to be present to have a measurable effect on the MMSE-score. It can be doubted however, that this is truly a threshold effect of WMC: it could also result from crude scaling of WMC, insensitive outcome measures or small sample sizes.

Furthermore, variations in window settings, echo - and repetition times will all give differences in contrast and thus detection. No uniform scanning protocol is used to this day, making the comparison or even pooling of results a compelling task. , 1991). Furthermore, in CT studies, as with MRI, the slice thickness, interslice gap, angulation and other technical settings are of importance for the detection of WMC and comparability of studies. The different imaging specifications will affect the sensitivity of the scan for WMC but is unlikely to influence the severity distribution of these changes in the population.
