Abstract:


Objective: To investigate the relationship between the corpus callosum area (CCa) and the degree of cerebral atrophy in patients with cerebral atrophy.

Methods: 119 patients with brain atrophy were grouped according to the degree of brain atrophy present. Median sagittal CCa and intracranial area (ICa) were measured, and the ratio of corpus callosum to intracranial area (CCa-ICa ratio) was calculated. The data were analyzed using ANOVA. Results: CCa was significantly reduced in patients with cerebral atrophy, and the degree of cerebral atrophy was positively correlated with the degree of reduction in the the CCa.

Conclusion: The reduction of CCa and the CCa-ICa ratio in the median sagittal can be used as a reference indicator for the diagnosis and grading of brain atrophy in clinical practice.
