dc.description.abstract Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) gained a lot of interest recently, especially that the conversion rate to Alzheimer Disease (AD) in the amnestic subtype (aMCI) is higher than in the non-amnestic subtype (naMCI). We aimed to determine whether and how diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) using the diffusion tensor model (DTI) can differentiate MCI subtypes from healthy subjects. High resolution 3D T1W and DWI images of patients (aMCI, n = 18; naMCI, n = 20; according to Petersen criteria) and controls (n = 27) were acquired at 3T and processed using ExploreDTI and SPM. Voxel-wise and region of interest (ROI) analyses of fractional anisotropy (FA) and mean diffusivity (MD) were performed with ANCOVA; MD was higher in aMCI compared to controls or naMCI in several grey and white matter (GM, WM) regions (especially in the temporal pole and the inferior temporal lobes), while FA was lower in WM ROI-s (e.g. left Cingulum). Moreover, significant correlations were identified between verbal fluency, visual and verbal memory performance and DTI metrics. Logistic regression showed that measuring FA of the crus of fornix along GM volumetry improves the discrimination of aMCI from naMCI. Additional information from DWI/DTI aids preclinical detection of AD and may help detecting early non-Alzheimer type dementia, too.
