The Alzheimer's disease has become the most frequent cause of dementia in the last few years, and it is responsible, alone or in association with other diseases, for 50% of the cases in western countries. The main focus of this work is to develop a multicriteria model for aiding in decision making on the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease by using the Aranau Tool, structured on the Verbal Decision Analysis. In this work, the modeling and evaluation processes were conducted with the aid of a medical expert, bibliographic sources and questionnaires. The questionnaires taken into account were based mainly on patients' neuroimaging tests, and we analyzed wheter or not there were problems in the patients' brain that could be relevant to the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
