Cerebrovascular disease (CVD), has been linked with mild cognitive impairment and dementia stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD); however, the question of whether CVD is associated with underlying AD pathophysiology remains unresolved. There remain many questions regarding CVD/AD pathophysiology interactions and whether related clinical AD dementia is enhanced by CVD. In this study, we investigated the relationship between cardiac and low frequency flow oscillations from 4D-Flow, white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) from T2 FLAIR MRI, and AD pathology assessed using β-amyloid (Aβ) and tau PET imaging data.
