In brief: Alzheimers

Mild cognitive impairment is a label for the earliest memory or cognitive loss.
Memory loss may occur initially in alzheimer's, organizational skill loss may occur early in other dementias, such as lewy body, and these are varieties of mci. Prodromal alzheimer's is now preferred term. Still use mci to denote early symptoms which lead to diagnosis.
