BMET Cognitive Testing


The Brief Memory and Executive Test (BMET) is a short cognitive screen to detect the cognitive deficit seen in patients with vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) due to cerebral small vessel disease. Its been designed to be suitable for use by clinicians and researchers. We have shown it is sensitive to VCI in this patient group, and has a high sensitivity and specificity in separating this from normal elderly and patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
