The regional variation in CAA should be considered in sampling tissue for microscopic evaluation, or for planning a brain biopsy, although such an investigation is almost never performed strictly to evaluate severity of amyloid angiopathy. Assessment of the severity of CAA can be determined by evaluating the extent and involvement of individual vessels by amyloid, and the density of amyloid-laden microvessels. It is now widely accepted that the extent of amyloid deposition within vessel walls correlates with increasing risk of cerebral (parenchymal) hemorrhage.
