The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) requires a

reading center to continue work begun in 1991 for interpretation of

cerebral magnetic resonance images (MRI) performed in the

epidemiological research study of the major factors contributing to the

occurrence of heart disease and stroke in elderly adults entitled

"Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS)."  The MRI Reading Center will

assist in protocol development for the performance of repeat cerebral

MRI scans on about 3,400 participants at four CHS Field Centers, and

will perform measurements and interpretations of these images in a

standardized and reproducible manner.  The period of performance is

July 1, 1995 through May 31, 2000.
