This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To determine the diagnostic accuracy of the MMSE at various thresholds for detecting individuals with MCI at baseline who would clinically convert to Alzheimer’s disease dementia or other forms of dementia at follow-up
To assess the heterogeneity of test accuracy by population (e.g. memory clinics, community settings) and MMSE thresholds, amongst other factors.
