Sickle cell disease is a genetic blood disorder that affects red blood cells’ oxygen-carrying capacity. A substantial proportion of childhood morbidity results from cerebral infarction, and in particular from infarctions in the white matter of the brain, visible as white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) on MRI scans. To gain further insight into the pathophysiology of sickle cell disease, Veronica van der Land investigates these WMHs using new imaging techniques.
