Moyamoya disease (MMD) is characterized by progressive arterial occlusion, causing chronic hemodynamic impairment, which can reduce brain volume. A novel quantitative technique, synthetic magnetic resonance imaging (SyMRI), can evaluate brain volume. This study aimed to investigate whether brain volume measured with SyMRI correlated with cerebral blood flow (CBF) and brain function in adult MMD. In this retrospective study, 18 adult patients with MMD were included. CBF was measured using iodine-123-N-isopropyl-p-iodoamphetamine single photon emission computed tomography. Cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) to acetazolamide challenge was also evaluated. Brain function was measured using the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scales (WAIS)-III/IV and the WAIS-R tests. Gray matter (GM), white matter, and myelin-correlated volumes were evaluated in six areas. Resting CBF was positively correlated with GM fractions in the right anterior cerebral arterial and right middle cerebral arterial (MCA) territories. CVR was positively correlated with GM fraction in the right posterior cerebral arterial (PCA) territory. Full-Scale Intelligence Quotient and Verbal Comprehension Index scores were marginally positively correlated with GM fractions in the left PCA territory. Processing Speed Index score was marginally positively correlated with GM fraction in the right MCA territory. The SyMRI-measured territorial GM fraction correlated with CBF and brain function in patients with MMD.
