Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) has been associated with many diseases. The MCI could be a marker for the early diagnosis of certain diseases. Early detection of MCI could be beneficial for restoration of cognitive reserves. One hundred and five subjects were included in the study, underwent the Digital Brain Function Screen (DBFS) test as well as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) test and 73 subjects took the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) test. DBFS test and retest was taken by 16 subjects. The test scores of DBFS tool showed significant positive correlation with MoCA and MMSE test scores. In conclusion, the DBFS tool could be an effective digital tool which can overcome the disadvantages of traditional tools of screening MCI like MoCA and MMSE.
