Cortical damage in Alzheimer's disease estimation in medial and lateral aspects of the cerebrum using an improved mapping method based on diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES A method of estimating and mapping the cortical damage resulting from neurodegenerative diseases based on diffusion-weighted imaging was recently proposed. We improved on this method to visualize the cortical damage in Alzheimer's disease (AD) in the lateral and medial aspects of the cerebral hemispheres and to provide anatomic… (More)
