Hi there, my sister and I posted a while back about our mother here. We have been going through the process of trying to get a diagnosis for mum. It's been slow going but we have gotten mum seen by a GP who then referred her to a neurologist. Other professionals (Social Workers, CPNs setc) have become increasingly involved as mum's levels of confusion have gotten worse (following a brief stay in hospital a couple of months ago). Mandy (my sister) and I have been kinda holding out for the results of a CT scan that was done in July. It's been the only thing keeping us going in some ways, thinking that once we had a confirmed diagnosis people would begin to take Mum's problems more seriously and we would have more of an idea of the kind of level of care she needs both now and longer term.(She currently lives on her own in a sheltered accomodation scheme). Well today mum phoned to say she'd received the results of the CT scan in the post and that it found no problems and that this means she's fine! My questions are really ... a) What are the next steps likely to be? (I'm pretty confident the neurologist won't leave it there). b) What types of dementia, if any, does a clear CT scan rule out? c) Are other types of scan likely? EMI or whatever, and what will these be looking for?
