The accepted criteria for the clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer disease were formulated by a task force jointly convened by the National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Disorders and Stroke (NINCDS) and the Alzheimer Disease and Related Disorders Association (ADRDA).[8] According to these criteria, the diagnosis of "probable" Alzheimer's disease, the highest level of certainty currently possible without histological confirmation, requires a workup to rule out other intracerebral or systemic diseases that could produce dementia.
The information documented as part of the GMS/ HAS interview also allowed a diagnosis of dementia to be made according to NINCDS ADRDA criteria [17], the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, third edition, revised (DSM-III-R) criteria [18], the Hachinski Scale [19], the McKeith et al.
