Addenbrooke’s Cognitive Examination validation in Parkinson’s disease
Background: There is a clear need for brief, sensitive and specific cognitive screening instruments in Parkinson’s disease (PD).; Objectives: To study Addenbrooke’s Cognitive Examination (ACE) validity for cognitive assessment of PD patient’s using the Mattis Dementia Rating Scale (MDRS) as reference method. A specific scale for cognitive evaluation in PD, in this instance the Scales […]
CSF biomarker profile and diagnostic value in vascular dementia
Background and Purpose: The differential diagnosis between vascular dementia (VD) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) or mixed dementia (MD) is not always easy in clinical practice. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers tau protein in its total (tau(T)) or hyperphosphorylated at threonin-181(tau(P-181)) form and beta amyloid peptide 1-42 […]
Cued recall and other cognitive tasks to facilitate dementia recognition in primary care
Objectives: To compare the accuracy of commonly used tasks with that of the Visual Association Test (VAT), a conceptually different test involving cued recall of pictorial stimuli, in the recognition of dementia within primary care.; Design: A cross-sectional diagnostic study of concurrent validity.; Setting: Twenty-nine German primary care practices.; Participants: Four hundred twenty-three individuals in […]
Combined evaluation of FDG-PET and MRI improves detection and differentiation of dementia
Introduction: Various biomarkers have been reported in recent literature regarding imaging abnormalities in different types of dementia. These biomarkers have helped to significantly improve early detection and also differentiation of various dementia syndromes. In this study, we systematically applied whole-brain and region-of-interest (ROI) based support vector machine classification separately and on combined information from different […]
