This quick guide contains the key recommendations from the national clinical guideline for diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment and dementia. The guideline was prepared under the auspices of the Danish Health Authority.

Dementia is a clinical diagnosis made on the basis of an overall assessment of symptoms, medical history, laboratory tests and various types of brain imaging. There is currently no specific method of examination or test that can definitively clarify whether or not someone has dementia. The guideline thus recommends a combination of different tests and examinations that should be offered to persons suspected of mild cognitive impairment or dementia, or as regards the dementia subtype.
