The Montreal Cognitive Assessment for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia disorders

  • Protocol
  • Diagnostic



This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Diagnostic test accuracy). The objectives are as follows:

  • To determine the diagnostic accuracy of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) at various thresholds for dementia and its subtypes, against a concurrently applied reference standard.

  • To highlight the quality and quantity of research evidence available about the accuracy of the index test in the target population;

  • To investigate the heterogeneity of test accuracy in the included studies;

  • To identify gaps in the evidence and where further research is required.
