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]
