INTRODUCTION The objective is to establish the existence of possible correlations between cognitive measures using the a-BT, and functional measures in a population of normal to moderately severe demented subjects. METHODS A sample of 107 subjects (42 healthy controls, 19 subjects with mild cognitive impairment and 46 patients with probable Alzheimer's(More)
We present a case report of invasive hepatic fascioliasis. Ramified hypodense lesions with peripheral distribution were found in the CT-scan. These lesions disappeared after treatment with Bithionol. CT-scan plays an important role in the diagnosis of invasive fascioliasis whereas ultrasound is useful in the chronic phase. Both are helpful to evaluate(More)
INTRODUCTION The study aimed to investigate the Rapid Disability Rating Scale-2 (RDRS-2) in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Test retest reliability, internal consistency, data of discriminant validity of the scale, correlations with other functional and cognitive measures were analyzed. MATERIAL AND METHODS 451 subjects were assessed: 254 healthy controls, 86(More)
INTRODUCTION The aims of this study were to assess the criterion validity of Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale (ADAS) and its cognitive subscale (ADAS-Cog) for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and to determine their different cut-off scores and sensitivity and specificity values. In addition, we also attempted to study the possible correlations(More)
INTRODUCTION This study aims to discover the criterion validity of the Blessed Dementia Rating Scale (BDRS) for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. Different cut-off scores and corresponding diagnostic sensitivities and specificities were established. Test-retest reliability and internal consistency of the BDRS were also analyzed.
