Definite diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease is still the main problem faced by medical clinicians. Nowadays, Magnetic Resonance Imaging has become an important diagnostic tool for Alzheimer. Entorhinal cortex and hippocampal volume are the principle focus while using Magnetic Resonance Imaging. However, Magnetic Resonance Imaging not only can measure morphological brain region, but also volume, atrophic rate, concentration of brain metabolites and ferritin. Each type of MRI technique has its own specificity and sensitivity in diagnosing Alzheimer’s.Key words: Alzheimer’s Disease, varieties of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
