Hi there,

Do you have any specific question about cerebral atrophy or just looking for general information?

Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 6 months ago.
Cerebral atrophy, or the visible loss of brain volume, is common in patients with dementia. Atrophy may be generalized or regionally localized.
Expert:  Dr. Scott replied 6 months ago.
Normal brain aging is associated with age-related atrophy. It is estimated that the brain loses approximately 0.5 percent of its volume each year in normal aging.
