Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive nervous system disorder as a result from the loss of cell in basal ganglia. Fixel-Based Analysis can qualify the fibre density and fibre-bundle cross-section in the nerve fibre. Further, gray matter degeneration was determined by using ROI-based Analysis to investigate Mean Diffusivity (MD) changes. Therefore, the current study proposed to investigate the structural connectivity of atrophy cortical regions in the PD patients with axonal injury over a period of 2 years.
