Foci of increased T2 signal intensity were found on brain MR scans in 16 (59%) of 27 healthy elderly volunteer subjects, ages 63 to 86 years old. These foci were not related to cognitive function or cerebrovascular risk factor; instead, they were highly correlated to age, being present in 11 of 11 subjects aged 75 years and over.
