Artificial intelligence may aid in Alzheimer’s diagnosis

The classifiers can be represented as discrimination maps, where a red color indicates that the intensity at that location contributes to the likelihood of the images belonging to the more advanced stage, and a blue color to the likelihood of belonging to the less advanced stage. Weights are shown inside the mask that resulted in the highest accuracies for each classification: A: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) vs. subjective cognitive decline (SCD); B: AD vs. mild cognitive impairment (MCI); C: MCI vs. SCD.

Now, researchers in The Netherlands have coupled machine learning methods with a special MRI technique that measures the perfusion, or tissue…
