Artificial Intelligence Could Aid Earlier Diagnosis Of Alzheimer’s

By Suzanne Hodsden Scientists in the Netherlands are looking to pair artificial intelligence (AI), or machine learning, with MRI techniques that measure blood perfusion in the brain. This approach, said the researchers — diagnoses early forms of dementia and predicts the onset of Alzheimer’s disease with between 82 and 90 percent accuracy. Though there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, experts believe that early diagnosis could improve patient outcomes and alleviate the healthcare system’s financial burden associated with the disease.  According to the Alzheimer’s Association, only 45 percent of patients and their caregivers dealing with the disease are aware of the diagnosis. Recent Alzheimer’s research suggests that it may be possible to isolate biomarkers in the blood to diagnose the disease, demonstrated by scientists at Rowan University. Another study conducted in…
