Diagnosis

UT Southwestern Medical Center's programs for treating memory disorders address Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, and other less common syndromes.

Our Alzheimer’s Disease Center (ADC) is one of 32 institutions funded by the National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging to evaluate patients and conduct scientific research on the causes of Alzheimer's disease.

Patients at UT Southwestern receive thorough diagnostic evaluations to identify and classify any existing memory problems or disorders.

We offer the most advanced analytic tests available, including:

  • DNA and plasma evaluations
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Neuropsychological testing
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scans
