Reason I am asking is that I believe my husband suffers from this. Doctor did a cat scan and could not find anything

Does alcohol dementia show up on a cat scan?
It's possible. Alcoholic dementia can present in MRI as atrophied (shrunk) brain, enlarged central ventricles (black) and deep indentations around the brain's edges.
