Neurology residents conducted TMSE and Physical examination. The diagnosis of dementia was using the DSM IV criteria. Results: 67 subjects were diagnosed with dementia by DSM IV criteria. The CDT at cut off score of 7 had sensitivity 83.8% and specificity 65.2% with area under ROC being 0.825. For ADL assessment at the cut off score of 5 had sensitivity 74.6% and specificity 79.1% with the area under ROC being 0.849. Using CDT and ADL questionnaires together increased the area under the curve from 0.825 to 0.905. Conclusion: The combination of CDT and ADL questionnaire help increase sensitivity and specificity for screening dementia.
