Different brain databases, such as: (1) the database of the anatomic MRI brain scans of children across a wide range of ages to serve as a resource for the pediatric neuroimaging research community [6], (2) Brigham RAD Teaching Case Database Department of Radiology, Brigham and Women’s Hospital Harvard Medical School [2], (3) Brain Web Simulated Brain Database site of a normal brain and a brain affected by multiple sclerosis [3] are using from many researchers. In this paper, we present MEDIMAGE - a multimedia database for Alzheimer’s disease patients. It contains imaging, text and voice data and it used to find some correlations of brain atrophy in Alzheimer’s patients with different demographic factors.
