概要 The objectives of the present study were: (1) to examine the sensitivity and specificity of a total BGT score of 98 as a cutoff value in greater numbers of DLB patients than in the previous study, (2) to set a new cutoff value if a cutoff value of 98 is not optimal, and (3) to clarify the frequency of element deformation and gestalt destruction in DLB patients. The participants were 133 DLB patients, 65 AD patients, and 30 cognitively normal elderly people. All of the participants underwent the Mini-Mental State Examination, BGT, and brain magnetic resonance imaging. As a result, the total BGT score cutoff value of 98 showed low sensitivity (0.58), and a cutoff value of 84 was indicated to be the optimal cutoff value for discriminating between DLB and AD. In addition, 32 out of 133 DLB patients and one out of 65 AD patients exhibited element deformation or gestalt destruction.
