Abstract

Available information suggests that MR imaging and CT are excellent tools for the early diagnosis of AD. They also communicate significant information about other nondegenerative causes of dementia and serve as a good tool for screening. When the clinician is uncertain of the exact type of dementia, particularly when there are atypical features, SPECT and PET scanning can help the clinician arrive at a more certain diagnosis. Rapid advances in imaging methods including new imaging technologies are likely to improve on these early observations and possibly enable clinicians the opportunity to view the AD process directly.
