Adding the Visual Association Test (VAT) to the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) increases its accuracy in predicting dementia, suggest researchers in a study published online May 14, 2018 in the Annals of Family Medicine. According to them, VAT score has incremental value in discriminating between older adults with and without increased risk of dementia, especially among those with a small decline in MMSE score.
