Dementia syndromes include a wide spectrum of diseases where clinical presentation and imaging findings are sometimes overlapping.
Brain imaging is recommended in all current diagnostic dementia guidelines. Recently they also recommend the application of atrophy rating scales to assess structural changes in the brain of elderly patients, such as the medial temporal lobe atrophy(Scheltens). However, there is still low uptake in routine clinical setting and knowledge of the neuroimaging strategies available and MRI rating scales is needed in order to encourage clinicians and radiologists to use them.
