In brief: No.
Mci involves impairment in one area of brain functioning more than one would expect for your age and previous level of functioning.
The impairment can be in memory, judgement, ability to reason or language. Some people who have mci will later develop dementia so it is thought of as a predementia state. Not everyone with mci will develop dementia.

In brief: MCI
Mild cognitive impairment may be a sign of early dementia, but could result from other causes such as mini stroke.
