316 mm3. The borders of the hippocampi are manually traced on the workstation screen for each image slice sequentially from posterior to anterior. Typically, 40 to 50 imaging slices are measured for each hippocampus. , 1997). The posterior boundary of the hippocampus is determined by the oblique coronal anatomic section, in which the crura of the fornices are defined in full profile. Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated between the hippocampal volume measured from MRIs obtained at study entry, as well as the participants' baseline Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-Cognitive portion (ADAS-COG) (Rosen, Mohs, & Davis, 1984) and Clinical Dementia Rating (CDR) Sum of Boxes (Morris, 1997), in order to determine the relationship between hippocampal volume and cognitive and functional performance at baseline.

The resulting loss of neurons and synapses in this region is manifested at a macroscopic level by medial temporal lobe atrophy, which can be observed by visual inspection of the brain at autopsy or by MRI in living patients. Paralleling the neuropathological changes, clinical symptoms of AD often involve cognitive impairments and fluctuations in body weight that are closely linked to medial temporal lobe atrophy (Grundman, Corey-Bloom, Jernigan, Archibald, & Thai, 1996a). In recent years, considerable effort has been devoted to imaging these structures to see if they serve as a useful adjunct in diagnosing and following patients with early AD.
