go on to develop dementia, Chinnery said. But "a lot of people either stay the same or get better because you can do some things (via treatment) with mild cognitive impairment."
There is a distinct pattern of performance on measures of cognitive
functions (neuropsychological tests) together with a comprehensive review of the clinical history and behaviors, along with a neurological examination, that makes the diagnosis of dementia of the Alzheimer's type accurate, Chinnery said.
How accurate are the tests?
Alzheimer's disease, Chinnery said, can be diagnosed with 97 percent sensitivity and 100 percent specificity.
