Cerebral hemorrhage is a common cerebrovascular disease in elderly people and associated with hypertension cerebral amyloid angiopathy. However, the amount of interacerebral microbleeding is strongly and dependently relate to incidence of cerebral hemorrhage and its effect on treatment decision. In this study, we accessed the quantity of microbleed using quantitative susceptibility mapping technique to provide a possible quantified approach for medical diagnosis.
