Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI is a structural neuro-imaging method that provides images of the brain and other anatomical structures. Some studies using MRI have demonstrated that medial temporal lobe (MTL) atrophy can be predictive of Dementia Alzheimer’s Type (DAT) and that has been associated with neuropsychological and post-mortem data. MRI may assist in the diagnosis of DAT.
An MRI may be obtained if it is suspected that the patient has dementia, however MRI is not required to make a diagnosis of dementia
