Eighteen Parkinson Disease’s (PD) patients and four healthy controls(HC) underwent the diffusional kurtosis imaging (DKI) and then we tested the PD’s patients with Hoehn-Yahr scale and Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale(UPDRS). As a result, we found a significant decrease of Mean kurtosis (MK) values in the left substantia nigra between PD’s patients and healthy controls. Moreover, the kurtosis fractional anisotropy (KFA) values in right red nucleus of the PD’s patients were positively associated with the UPDRS scores in our study.
