Edinburgh Criteria for CAA-associated ICH Training (ECCITING)

ECCITING may help you to learn about how to read & rate CT brain scans in which haemorrhage is a finding. Participation also helps validate the Edinburgh criteria & collect data on its prognostic value.

The Edinburgh CT & genetic criteria for cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA)-associated lobar intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) were developed in 2018.

The simple criteria were shown to be accurate in ruling out, or ruling in, CAA-associated lobar ICH in the development setting.

Our ongoing research aims to:

  • validate the Edinburgh criteria
  • assess its prognostic value

The results from the initial study are described in this paper:


ECCITING is a series of online training resources to help you learn how to implement the Edinburgh CT & genetic criteria for CAA-associated lobar ICH.

The training is designed to improve observer reliability & is currently aimed at researchers who plan to use the Edinburgh criteria.

Participation increases the amount of observer reliability data & is eligible for CPD / CME.

The training resources include:

  • online lectures which teach how to review & assess CT brain scans in the context of acute intracerebral haemorrhage
  • MCQ questions for self-assessment to help you make sure you understand the learning objectives of the lectures 
  • validated CT brain scans for you to review & assess, with automated feedback which compares your performance to that of a designated "gold standard" reviewer [anticipated launch Dec 2018]
