How is brain atrophy diagnosed?

To diagnose brain atrophy and any underlying condition, your healthcare provider will usually ask about your:

  • Family history of health conditions.

Your healthcare provider will also use different tests to evaluate your brain function. Tests might look at:

  • Coordination.
  • Eye movement.
