Measured using an advanced 3D pCASL with Hadamard encoded multiple PLDs, patients with MCI showed different patterns of reduced CBF and prolonged ATT in comparison with both AD patients and healthy controls, where CBF and ATT changes highly correlated with severity of disease as assessed by neuropsychological test scores. These findings raised the speculation of underlying vascular abnormality in prodromal AD. Our results also suggested that ATT could serve as useful hemodynamic measure of itself, may be of diagnostic utility for prodromal AD or vascular dementia.
