An expanded role for neuroimaging in the evaluation of memory impairment

Authors Rahul Desikan et al from UCSD and UCSF describe a strategy to incorporate newly available imaging markers in the workup of memory problems, emphasizing that evidence of neurodegeneration can be an important piece of the puzzle to guide further management and testing, while helping to avoid overuse of more expensive biomarker tests. The paper highlights the way in which advanced neuroimaging tools such as’ NeuroQuant® volumetric MRI analysis system can provide information key to an improved understanding of the patient’s clinical status.
