Preventitive Medicine for Memory Loss
I am 70 and my memory loss has increases each year. What scans are available to get checked out? I am a believer in preventative medicine and want to find out if my loss is normal for my age or is it something else. Thank you.
I suggest seeing a neurologist or other physician experienced in the field. A scan may or may not be indicated.
