Abstract

Motion artifacts are a well-known and frequent limitation during neuroimaging workup of cognitive decline. While head motion typically deteriorates image quality, we test the hypothesis that head motion differs systematically between healthy controls (HC), amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) and Alzheimer disease (AD) and consequently might contain diagnostic information. This prospective study was approved by the local ethics committee and includes 28 HC (age 71.0 ± 6.9 years, 18 females), 15 aMCI (age 67.7 ± 10.9 years, 9 females) and 20 AD (age 73.4 ± 6.8 years, 10 females). Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) at 3T included a 9 min echo-planar imaging sequence with 180 repetitions. Cumulative average head rotation and translation was estimated based on standard fMRI preprocessing and compared between groups using receiver operating characteristic statistics. Global cumulative head rotation discriminated aMCI from controls [p < 0.01, area under curve (AUC) 0.74] and AD from controls (p < 0.01, AUC 0.73). The ratio of rotation z versus y discriminated AD from controls (p < 0.05, AUC 0.71) and AD from aMCI (p < 0.05, AUC of 0.75). Head motion systematically differs between aMCI/AD and controls. Since motion is not random but convoluted with diagnosis, the higher amount of motion in aMCI and AD as compared to controls might be a potential confounding factor for fMRI group comparisons. Additionally, head motion not only deteriorates image quality, yet also contains useful discriminatory information and is available for free as a "side product" of fMRI data preprocessing.
