Description: The diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) often represents prodromal Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia, but exceptions exist. However, diagnosis, prediction of outcome, and treatment of patients with mild cognitive impairment presents many challenges. Faculty will address the diagnosis, pathophysiology, role of biomarkers, and treatment of mild cognitive impairment. The upcoming revision of the AAN Practice Parameter for MCI will be reviewed and a number of cases will be presented to illustrate controversies and management issues.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand the diagnostic criteria and basic biology of MCI and be familiar with the recommended diagnostic guidelines, appropriate use of biomarkers, and management of patients with MCI.
