Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Cerebrovascular reserve is impaired in radiation vasculopathy from radiation injury to small arteries and arterioles. Few interventions or medications have been shown to be effective in this disease. We report a unique finding in which a statin contributed to worsening of the cerebrovascular reserve.
