AB  - BACKGROUND: One of the first symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is word
      retrieval deficits. A systematic evaluation of word retrieval deficits can have
      an important predictive value for developing Alzheimer's disease. OBJECTIVE: Is
      the test for finding word retrieval deficits (word finding= WoFi) able to detect 
      deficits in word retrieval and does it correlate with other dementia tests?
      METHODS: A word retrieval test called WoFi was developed. It is an instrument
      that tests word retrieval deficits based on 50 questions. A maximum of 100 points
      can be scored. RESULTS: The control group scored significantly better than the AD
      group. Using a cut-off score of 84 points WoFi could discriminate controls from
      subjects with a sensitivity of 95% and a specificity of 92%. CONCLUSION: The use 
      of WoFi was able to test for word retrieval deficits. Application required less
      than 15min and test instructions are very simple. This instrument might be useful
      in telehealth.
