Dementia clinicians have multiple tests available which have been proven to aid diagnosis (SPECT, PET, MRI, CT, Cerebrospinal fluid analysis), but there is little guidance on how to best use these to optimise clinical diagnostic pathways.

Outcome

The study will identify clinician knowledge and attitudes to diagnostic tests. We will evaluate how each  investigation alters clinician diagnostic certainty, and the cost-effectiveness of introducing these investigations.
