Abstract

BACKGROUND:: Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows researchers to observe structural pathology that may predict cognitive decline. Some populations are less accessible through traditional in-person visits, and may be under-represented in the literature. METHODS:: We examined white matter hyperintensity volume (WMHV) and cerebral parenchymal fraction (CPF) as predictors of cognitive decline measured by a modified Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status (TICS-m) in the Northern Manhattan Stroke Study, a racially and ethnically diverse cohort study. Participants were stroke-free, above 50 years old, and had no contraindications to MRI. A total of 1143 participants had MRI and TICS-m data available [mean age 70 (SD=9), 61% women, 66% Hispanic, 17% Black, 15% white]. RESULTS:: Those in the third and fourth quartiles of WMHV had significantly greater decline in TICS-m over time as compared with those in the first quartile (Q3: −0.17 points/year, Q4: −0.30 points/year). Those in the bottom 2 quartiles of CPF had significantly greater decline in TICS-m than those in the top quartile (Q1: −0.3 points/year, Q2: −0.2 points/year). Apolipoprotein E (APOE) e4 allele carriers had greater cognitive decline per unit of CPF. Those with greater CPF preserve TICS-m performance better despite greater WMHV. CONCLUSIONS:: Telephone cognitive assessments can detect decline due to white matter lesions and smaller brain volumes.
