e-CASES: Fazekas scale for WM lesions
On MR, white matter hyperintensities (WMH) and lacunes - both of which are frequently observed in the elderly - are generally viewed as evidence of small vessel disease.
The Fazekas-scale provides an overall impression of the presence of WMH in the entire brain.
It is best scored on transverse FLAIR or T2-weighted images.
