Clinical Diagnosis

Clinical diagnoses including dementia, Alzheimer’s dementia, and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) are rendered at each assessment using a 3-stage process involving computer scoring of cognitive tests, clinical judgment by a neuropsychologist, and diagnostic classification by an experienced clinician. A final clinical consensus diagnosis is rendered regarding the most likely clinical diagnosis at the time of death, blinded to postmortem data.
