Clinician attitudes to dementia investigations (CADI)

Theme Group: Diagnosis and prognosis

Sub Theme: Imaging

Status: Active

Project overview:

The CADI study was focussed on a service evaluation questionnaire to determine the use of perfusion SPECT imaging to influence diagnosis and diagnostic confidence in clinical practice. Surveys submitted from both clinicians and service users indicated that perfusion SPECT is valued by clinicians and contributes to the diagnostic process and understanding of the patient’s disease. The information from the study directly validated the use of perfusion SPECT imaging locally for aiding dementia diagnosis.
