Meeting Our Patient

Professor Frisoni outlines the key steps of the diagnostic journey for a patient presenting to a memory clinic. He introduces a case study, detailing the presenting complaint, medical history, cognitive assessments, initial diagnosis and management, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results.

Key Learning Objectives from Biogen’s EAN 2021 Symposium:

  • Address the complexities around diagnosis and management of AD, including how cognitive and functional assessments may support the early diagnosis of AD
  • Gain insights into the use of diagnostic biomarkers and the impact these could have on the patient journey
  • Discuss current and prospective measures that could be undertaken to allow the timely diagnosis and management of individuals with AD, in the context of current healthcare infrastructure
