ESRD results in excessive accumulation of urea and toxic metabolites. Hemodialysis is usually performed to maintain health in patients with ESRD; however, it may cause silent white matter alterations in the earlier stages. Hence, this study aimed to perform voxelwise diffusion tensor analysis for global detection of subtle white matter alterations in patients with ESRD.
