Abstract

Accurate detection of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is important to stratify and address risk. Yet, few short cognitive screening instruments are validated for this. We compared the accuracy of the quick mild cognitive impairment screen(Qmci) to the SMMSE in 283 participants: 195 with dementia, 47 with MCI and 41 with subjective cognitive decline (SCD). Both tests had similar accuracy in identifying dementia but the Qmci was more accurate than the SMMSE in differentiating MCI from SCD.
