This project will look at high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) MRI for predicting progression from normal Parkinson's disease (PD) to PD with mild cognitive decline and PD with dementia. Comparisons can be made with diffusion tensor imaging MRI in Parkinson's disease, and with HARDI scans in Alzheimer's disease.
