Convergent evidence has been collected to support that Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is associated with reduction in hippocampal volume based on anatomical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and impaired functional connectivity based on functional MRI. Radiomics texture analysis has been previously successfully used to identify MRI biomarkers of several diseases, including AD, mild cognitive impairment and multiple sclerosis. In this study, our goal was to determine if MRI hippocampal textures, including the intensity, shape, texture and wavelet features, could be served as an MRI biomarker of AD. For this purpose, the texture marker was trained and evaluated from MRI data of 48 AD and 39 normal samples. The result highlights the presence of hippocampal texture abnormalities in AD, and the possibility that texture may serve as a neuroimaging biomarker for AD.
