Simple global measures describing the complexity of the
white matter architecture can provide useful information when analyzing
diffusion MRI data, and can be even capable of finding statistical differences
between groups. We propose the use of the fractal dimension of the FA maps for
that purpose, and illustrate its potential on a dataset composed of elderly
subjects and patients from three different stages of Alzheimer’s disease.
