AIIMS experts have conducted detailed examination of sacked Commonwealth Games Organising Committee chief Suresh Kalmadi for memory-related disorder dementia besides a number of other pathological tests of his vital parameters.

Lodged in Tihar jail for nearly three months in connection with the multi-crore Commonwealth Games scam, 67-year-old Kalmadi was admitted to AIIMS for a medical checkup on August 1.

Sources said doctors have carried out positron emission tomography (PET) scan of his brain to assess a wide range of conditions including the determination of dementia or any brain lesion.

He has undergone a number of blood chemistry tests so that a clear picture of his ailments could emerge, the sources said.

Though his MRI is already done, Mr. Kalmadi is yet to undergo a cardiac evaluation, they said.

Jail authorities have deposited an amount of Rs. 12,000 towards fees for conducting various tests.

A three-member team of doctors including, neurologist Dr. M.V. Padma, cardiologist Dr. Rakesh Yadav and Dr. Aarti Vij, has been formed to conduct the investigations.
