Schematic representation of patient enrollment. A total of 157 of 189 patients completed comprehensive evaluations, including neuroimaging and neuropsychological assessments, and were recruited into the study. Based on their performance on neuropsychological tests, patents were divided into those with vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) or those with no cognitive impairment (NCI).
