    Aim: Diagnosis and classification of Vascular Cognitive Impairment (VCI) are still based on clinical manifestations and neuropsychological scales, but is not conducive to early clinical diagnosis and prevention. We aimed to investigate Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) of cognitive impairment caused by vascular leukoencephalus loosening. Methods: Using magnetic resonance diffusion tensor imaging DTI as a research method, in combination with neuropsychological testing, we investigated the relationship between brain white matter microstructural changes and cognitive impairment in patients with cognitive impairment. Systematic analysis was performed in all 60 patients with leukoaraiosis. Results: Compared with the Normal Control (NC) group, the anisotropy fraction AF values in the Regions of Interest (ROIs) of vascular d.. View More»
