Now, researchers in The Netherlands have coupled machine learning methods with a special MRI technique that measures the perfusion, or tissue absorption rate, of blood throughout the brain to detect early forms of dementia, such as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. “MRI can help with the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease,” said principal investigator Alle Meije Wink,…
