How is Alzheimer's disease diagnosed?


There is no single clinical test that can be used to identify Alzheimer's disease. A comprehensive patient evaluation includes a complete health history, physical examination, neurological and mental status assessments, and other tests, including analysis of blood and urine, electrocardiogram, and an imaging exam, such as CT or MRI. While this type of evaluation may provide a diagnosis of possible or probable Alzheimer's disease with up to 90 percent accuracy, absolute confirmation requires examination of brain tissue at autopsy.
