The underlying mechanism of vascular dementia remains unclear which leads to difficulties in developing specific disease treatments. This contribution firstly developed a multi-modal MRI approach on a mouse model with unilateral carotid artery stenosis as non-invasive measures. A positive correlation was built between fractional anisotropy and cerebral blood flow under hypoperfusion conditions, which provides insights into understanding the pathological mechanism of vascular dementia.
