A volumetric magnetic resonance imaging assessment of the hippocampal region was done in 50 patients with Alzheimer-type dementia and 25 members of a control group. There were no significant volumetric differences between the right and left hippocampi. The volumetric hippocampal measurements were 39.4% smaller in dementia of the Alzheimer type than in controls. In the differentiation between the analyzed groups of patients, the method had a sensitivity of 95% and a specificity of 92%. A… CONTINUE READING
