Objective

Arterial spin labeling (ASL) studies have revealed inconsistent regional cerebral blood flow (CBF) alterations in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The aim of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to identify concordant regional CBF alterations in T2DM.

Methods

A systematic review was conducted to the published literatures comparing cerebral perfusion between patients with T2DM and healthy controls using ASL. The seed-based d mapping (SDM) was further used to perform quantitative meta-analysis on voxel-based literatures and to estimate the regional CBF alterations in patients with T2DM. Metaregression was performed to explore the associations between clinical characteristics and cerebral perfusion alterations.

Results

A total of 13 studies with 14 reports were included in the systematic review and 7 studies with 7 reports were included in the quantitative meta-analysis. The qualitative review found widespread CBF reduction in cerebral lobes in T2DM. The meta-analysis found increased regional CBF in right supplementary motor area and decreased regional CBF in bilateral middle occipital gyrus, left caudate nucleus, right superior parietal gyrus, and left calcarine fissure/surrounding cortex in T2DM.

Conclusion

The patterns of cerebral perfusion alterations, characterized by the decreased CBF in occipital and parietal lobes, might be the neuropathology of visual impairment and cognitive aging in T2DM.
