Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a state where the cognitive functions are more impaired than what would be expected from aging alone but not enough to be described as dementia. In our material, there was an overrepresentation of men in the stable MCI group and an overrepre-sentation of women in the two other groups. Normalization of the data removed the gender-related differences in hippocampal volume and allowed for better utilization of the data. Hippocampal volumetry predicts conversion to dementia in MCI patients.
