Mean MINI-MENTAL STATE EXAMINATION Score was found 21 out of total 30 with SD±5.4. Higher score indicates lower dementia. P value indicates that there is significant association between VBI test and MINI-MENTAL STATE EXAMINATION (P value .000) This study concluded that there is significant association between VBI test and MINI-MENTAL STATE EXAMINATION.
