Written by leading authorities in the field, this book describes the cognitive changes associated with age, the earliest detectable stages of Alzheimer's, and the relationship of these conditions to MCI. The authors review the latest advances in our understanding of MCI, its prevalence, evaluation, management, and outcomes and in so doing provide practising physicians with a useful resource that assists them in identifying those MCI patients who will progress to recognised Alzheimer's Disease.
Beautifully presented in full colour, "Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Mild Cognitive Impairment" includes case studies and discusses future therapeutic and diagnostic strategies. It is an invaluable resource for postgraduates and professionals, for specialist physicians in neurology and psychiatric medicine, geriatric medicine and general practice.
