Poster Information
Abstract: Cerebral microbleeds are increasingly being identified on brain imaging thanks to hemosiderin sensitive MR sequences being more routinely used. There is sparse evidence as to their causes and significance. Stroke patients require treatment with antiplatelet and blood thinning agents, which poses practical difficulties when microbleeds are identified.

We present examples of different patterns of microbleeds, with discussion on potential causes and implications for treatment.
