Can LBD be diagnosed with an MRI? My husband had an MRI. The neurologist reported that there were "no emerging dementia problems" she could see on the MRI. However, my husband has a diagnosis of Complex Sleep Apnea. He has mild cognitive impairments and he is exhibiting some movement problems (ie right arm does not swing when walking, scuffs his right foot, pills his first finger and thumb, beginning to see a forward head tilt, some tremor in his hand). Please advise. Thank you.
