Background: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) estimates the microstructural alterations of the brain, as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based neuroimaging technique. Prior DTI studies reported decreased structural integrity of the superficial white matter (SWM) in the brain diseases. Objective: This study aimed to determine the diffusion characteristics of SWM in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) using tractography and region of interest (ROI) approaches. Methods: The diffusion MRI data were downloaded from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) database on 24 patients with AD, 24 with MCI, and 24 normal control (NC) s...
