Source: University of California Summary: A team of researchers has provided, for the first time, evidence that blood deposits in the brain may not require a blood vessel tear. Bleeding in the brain, identified as cerebral microbleeds (CMB) on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are tiny deposits of blood in the brain that are associatedRead More →
