Authors: Bertelson JA, Ajtai B
Dementia, whether secondary to Alzheimer disease or another process, is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although dementia remains a clinical diagnosis, for many years imaging has served as a key component in the assessment of patients with cognitive impairment. There have been tremendous advancements in the neuroimaging of dementia over the past decade, moving the field past the rule-out dogma toward ruling in specific pathophysiologic processes. This article is written for the practicing clinician, to provide a review of neuroimaging findings associated with selected degenerative and nondegenerative forms of dementia.
