Medical Care Corporation Enables Early Detection of Memory Loss Due to Alzheimer's Disease
Date:5/12/2009

IRVINE, Calif., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Care Corporation (MCC), the leading provider of high accuracy memory assessment technology, announced today that physicians now have a fast and accurate memory assessment procedure, the MCI Screen, which enables them to accurately separate normal declines due to aging from more serious signs of memory loss associated with an underlying medical condition.

Medical Care Corporation's MCI Screen is a brief memory assessment that allows physicians to detect abnormal recall patterns caused by medical conditions such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), vascular disease, depression and other disorders. The easy-to-administer test is 97 percent accurate in detecting Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), a transition stage between normal cognition and severe impairment associated with dementia. According to a study from the Mayo Clinic, 60 percent of those with MCI are diagnosed with AD within the next six years so detecting MCI enables physicians to intervene quickly and manage AD at an earlier stage.

The U.S. Preventative Services Task Force recommends cognitive assessment whenever there is evidence or suspicion of memory loss. Since the MCI Screen is quick and noninvasive, it functions as an efficient traffic-control mechanism that escorts the "worried well" out of the healthcare system while retaining those with real memory loss for further evaluation. This process allows physicians to prioritize resources and focus on those patients whose memory concerns are well founded.

The MCI Screen's precision is achieved by using advanced mathematical analysis that characterizes recall patterns within a large database of carefully studied patients. The test's computerized algorithm determines whether or not the patient's recall pattern matches those with a healthy profile. Research confirming the accuracy of the MCI Screen has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science and in the National Alzheimer's Association's Journal of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Copies of all publications are available at Medical Care Corporation's website: www.mccare.com.
