Currently, there is no single test that can accurately diagnose dementia. A detailed medical history, memory and thinking tests (called neuropsychological or cognitive tests), laboratory tests, and brain scans are typically used in the diagnosis process. Brain imaging can be used to identify strokes, tumors, or other problems that can cause dementia. The most common types of brain scans are computer tomographic (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). These types of brain imaging are frequently requested when examining a patient with suspected dementia. We will discuss the different types of brain imaging, what is seen on a CT or MRI scan, and what other types of brain imaging might be ordered.Add to Calendar
