  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine the accuracy of structural MRI in identifying people with MCI due to AD versus people with MCI due to other dementias or with no dementia.

To evaluate how the performance of MRI may vary according to the spectrum of tested patients, the setting, the brain region of interest and the technical characteristics of the imaging test.
