This study aims to create a reference database of digital cognitive assessment data in combination with neuroimaging data of patients with mild cognitive impairment. The investigators will explore and derive correlations between parameters from routine MRI images and brain volumetric analysis and the digital cognitive data to identify parameters that are relevant to classify MCI patients vs preexisting healthy control data.
Philips IntelliSpace Cognition (ISC) is a digital assessment platform that supports Healthcare Professionals (HCP) in assessing the cognition of individuals. It consists of two interfaces connected to the DCDx-module in the cloud. ISC is hosted on the Philips Health Suite Digital Platform (HSDP). The first interface is the patient's interface and is presented via a tablet to collect data on how the patient performs a series of tests. The second interface is the clinician's interface and can be used on any PC or tablet. It allows for assessments to be selected and administered, observations made, data analytics performed and the generation of a report.
Compare performance of patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]
Create a database of digital cognitive assessment data in combination with neuroimaging data of patients with mild cognitive impairment to: Compare performance of patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) to normative data of the healthy US population and characterize a MCI cognitive profile.
Derive correlations between parameters [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]
Create a database of digital cognitive assessment data in combination with neuroimaging data of patients with mild cognitive impairment to: Derive correlations between parameters derived from MRI images (NeuroQuant scores) and the digital cognitive data.
Identify (combinations of) parameters [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]
Create a database of digital cognitive assessment data in combination with neuroimaging data of patients with mild cognitive impairment to: Identify (combinations of) parameters that are relevant to classify MCI patients vs healthy controls.
Explore predictive values [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]
Create a database of digital cognitive assessment data in combination with neuroimaging data of patients with mild cognitive impairment to: Explore predictive value of combination of neuroimaging and digital cognitive outcome parameters to predict MCI to Alzheimer's disease conversion.
Secondary Outcome Measures :
Exploratory analysis to find new outcome measures from the raw input data of the digital cognitive tests. [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]
Evaluate the performance of ISC scoring algorithms. [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]
To explore usability aspects of ISC with MCI patients. [ Time Frame: Feb-2020 until Dec-2021 ]

Layout table for eligibility information
Ages Eligible for Study:
50 Years to 80 Years (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
The study will include N=125 patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).
Patient is able to give consent
MCI or amnestic MCI diagnosis by a clinical specialist, such as a neurologist - diagnosis not older than 12 months prior to inclusions date.
If 3D T1 MRI images are present they cannot be older than 6 months prior to the MCI clinical diagnosis was made.
Must be proficient in American English.
If patient has vision impairment or hearing loss, must be corrected to normal.
Must have use of fingers, hands, and arms to be able to use a pencil to write symbols.
Must be able to understand test instructions and participate fully in testing.
Currently admitted to a hospital, assisted living, nursing home or a psychiatric facility.
Diagnosed with a (neurological) disorder other than MCI or aMCI, i.e.:
Current primary neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Parkinson's disease, brain tumor, dementia)
Current epilepsy [if # seizures ≤ 2 and not receiving ongoing treatment for seizures, and not currently seeking medical evaluation or attention related to seizures, patient can be accepted],
Current language disorder (expressive or mixed receptive/expressive excluded; articulation disorder is ok)
Current learning disorder
Current or past psychotic disorder
Current severe mood disorder (in the case of Major Depressive Disorder in remission or with no current episode, and Dysthymic and Adjustment disorder, examinee can be accepted)
Current severe anxiety disorder (e.g., PTSD, GAD, OCD) with symptoms significant enough to interfere with optimal test performance (in the case of phobias, examinee can be accepted)
Current or past Autism Spectrum Disorder or Intellectual Disability
Primarily nonverbal or uncommunicative
Sleep apnea (moderate or severe, Apnea-Hypopnea Index <15 is acceptable)
Major structural intracranial abnormalities and brain disorders on prior imaging study (in the last 12 months), i.e.:
Major developmental disorders (e.g., polymicrogyria, schizencephaly)
Intracranial tumors: intraaxial (brain tumors); extraaxial (tumors of bone and meninges) insofar they exert mass effect on the brain with edema or gliosis
Chronic brain injury and acquired focal or diffuse loss of normal parenchyma regardless of the etiology (e.g. prior stroke,brain surgery, trauma, atrophy due to neurodegenerative disease such as frontotemporal degeneration; or other causes), with the exception of age related changes (e.g. mild-moderate cerebral volume loss) on either side and prior surgery that involved only the skull but not the brain
Vascular encephalopathy, defined as Fazekas grade 2 or lower
Any history of having been unconscious related to TBI or "medical condition" > 20 minutes or have had any head-injury resulting in an overnight hospital stay
Any history of a medical event requiring resuscitation in which examinee was non-responsive for > 15 minutes
Currently receiving chemotherapy treatment, or have received chemotherapy treatment in the past 2 months
Any history of ECT or radiation to the CNS
Currently diagnosed with substance abuse or dependence, or have carried any substance abuse or dependence diagnosis in the past year (> 1 year in remission diagnoses are ok)
