Patients with memory concerns undergo a thorough evaluation to determine possible causes of memory loss or reduced cognitive functioning.

Interdisciplinary Memory Assessment Program (IMAP)

If you or a loved one notices memory issues, our IMAP team can provide a memory evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan. You will need to participate in an intake phone call and a two-hour appointment. Learn more about IMAP.

Evaluation to Determine Cause of Memory Loss

To determine the cause of memory loss, team members:

  • Meet with the patient and family to obtain a thorough medical and behavioral history
  • Perform a neurological exam to test brain function
  • Conduct cognitive testing to assess mental processes

Testing for Memory Disorders

Other testing may include:

  • Laboratory tests
  • Neuro-imaging — Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin use advanced imaging technology — computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) — to detect abnormal areas in the brain’s structure and function.
  • Neuropsychological testing

A diagnosis and individualized care plan are provided to all patients and their family members. A copy of the assessment and regular progress reports are provided to the patient’s primary care physician.
