Abstract

Alzheimer's disease can be accurately diagnosed by clinical methods alone in about 90% of cases. The adoption of uniform diagnostic criteria and assessment procedures, such as those developed by the Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer's Disease (CERAD), will likely improve the characterization of the disease across a variety of clinical settings. In general, Alzheimer's disease is a relentlessly progressive disorder; however, it also is clinically heterogeneous. This is underscored by its diverse cognitive deficits, neurologic features, behavioral pathology, and rates of progression.
