A simple screening tool such as MoCA has been used for demonstrating cognitive change even in normal aging process. Brain MRI has been used to demonstrate the etiology of cognitive problem in elderly. Structural changes by both visual assessment and automated methods can be obtained using MR study. We demonstrated the differences of structural parameters including cortical thickness, volume and white matter lesions(nonspecific white matter change) with a clinical MoCA test in normal aging population.
