Subcortical vascular cognitive impairment (sVCI) is caused by lacunar infarcts or extensive and/or diffuse lesions in the white matter that may disrupt the white matter circuitry connecting cortical and subcortical regions and result in the degeneration of neurons in these regions. This study used structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) techniques to examine cortical thickness, subcortical shapes, and white matter integrity in mild… 
Aberrant Functional Connectivity and Structural Atrophy in Subcortical Vascular Cognitive Impairment: Relationship with Cognitive Impairments
TLDR
Evidence is provided for an association between structural and functional alterations, and light is shed on the underlying neural mechanisms of executive dysfunction in SVCI.
Default mode network integrity changes contribute to cognitive deficits in subcortical vascular cognitive impairment, no dementia
TLDR
Mediation analyses demonstrated that DTI values could account for attention, executive and language impairments, and partly mediated global cognitive dysfunction in the subcortical VCIND patients, which indicates that the white matter integrity of the DMN may be a neuroimaging marker for VCIND.
Subcortical Atrophy in Cognitive Impairment and Dementia.
TLDR
Subcortical gray matter atrophy is not only observed in dementia, but also in the preclinical stages of cognitive impairment, including VCI and non-VCI.
Neuroimaging Characteristics of Subcortical Vascular Cognitive Impairment
TLDR
This section will introduce an overview of the structural and functional neuroimaging characteristics of SVCI based on recent neuroim imaging studies with MRI, especially focused on pure SVCi.
Progressively Disrupted Brain Functional Connectivity Network in Subcortical Ischemic Vascular Cognitive Impairment Patients
TLDR
The brain connectivity network was progressively disrupted as cognitive impairment worsened, with an increased number of decreased connections between brain regions, and showed promise for the development of reliable biomarkers of network metric changes related to cognitive impairment caused by SIVD.
Analysis of Cerebral Blood Flow with Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography in Mild Subcortical Ischemic Vascular Dementia
TLDR
Reduction of CP in the brain areas mentioned was present earlier on in the natural course of SIVaD pathophysiology, and this study suggests that cognitive dysfunction of SivaD may be related to these regional CP deficits.
Disrupted Brain Structural Connectivity Network in Subcortical Ischemic Vascular Cognitive Impairment With No Dementia
TLDR
Cognitive impairment in SIVCIND patients is associated with disrupted topological organization and structural evidence for developing reliable biomarkers related to cognitive decline in SivCIND is provided.
Hippocampal subfield volumetry in patients with subcortical vascular mild cognitive impairment
TLDR
Taken together, the results reveal region-specific vulnerability of hippocampal subfields to svMCI pathology and identify distinct hippocampusal subfield atrophy patterns between SvMCI and aMCI patients.
Altered Functional Connectivity in Patients with Subcortical Vascular Cognitive Impairment—A Resting-State Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
TLDR
The findings suggest that the frontal lobe and subcortical brain sites play an important role in the pathogenesis of sVCI, and rsFC between the left thalamus and the PCC might indicate the severity of s VCI.
Cerebral Blood Flow Alterations as Assessed by 3D ASL in Cognitive Impairment in Patients with Subcortical Vascular Cognitive Impairment: A Marker for Disease Severity
TLDR
The deficit brain perfusions in the temporal and frontal lobe, hippocampus, thalamus and insula was related to the degree of cognitive impairment and its relationship to cognition indicates the clinical relevance of this functional marker.

A New Visual Rating Scale to Assess Strategic White Matter Hyperintensities Within Cholinergic Pathways in Dementia
TLDR
A new MRI rating scale for WMH in cholinergic pathways is reliable and shows stronger correlations with cognitive performance than a general WMH rating scale in AD with WMH, providing indirect evidence that localization of WMH within neurotransmitter systems may contribute to cognitive decline.
Volume reduction in subcortical regions according to severity of Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
The results suggest that there is a hierarchical vulnerability in subcortical structures according to the clinical severity of AD and that sub cortical volume reductions correlate with cognitive impairment.
