Artificial Intelligence to help Diagnose Alzheimer’s disease

NETHERLANDS -Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that allows computer programs to learn things when exposed to new data, without being reprogrammed. Now, researchers have matched machine learning methods with a special technique of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that measures blood perfusion (absorption rate of this tissue) throughout the brain to detect early forms of dementia. MRI can help diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. However, early diagnosis is difficult. Scientists have long known that Alzheimer’s disease is a gradual process and that the brain undergoes functional changes before the structural changes associated with the disease visually displayed on the test results. Doctors do not have a definitive way to identify who has early dementia or which cases of mild cognitive impairment will progress to Alzheimer’s. With the standard diagnostic MRI,…
