The role of gender in the diagnostic accuracy of amnestic MCI

Takeaway

  • Identifying sex-specific norms for verbal memory tests may lead to improvement in the diagnostic accuracy of amnestic MCI (aMCI).

Why this matters

    The application of sex-specific cut scores for defining verbal memory impairment may improves diagnostic accuracy in both sexes and may also result in earlier detection of memory impairment in women as well as avoid false diagnoses in men.
