Does Your Loved One have Alzheimer's?

The Final Testing Process for Diagnosis

The Final Testing Process for Diagnosis

To officially reach a diagnosis, a patient must undergo a few more tests that will help determine if the patient truly does have Alzheimer's. 

Tests include:

  • A Computerized Tomography (CT) scan, which takes several X-rays of your brain at different angles.
  • A Magnetic Resonant Imaging (MRI) scan, which is used to create a detailed image of your brain.

Speak with a doctor today if your loved one has any of the signs or symptoms, so he or she can receive treatment as soon as possible.
