Artificial intelligence-based algorithm for the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's

#artificialintelligence

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects a significant proportion of the older population worldwide. It causes irreparable damage to the brain and severely impairs the quality of life in patients. Unfortunately, AD cannot be cured, but early detection can allow medication to manage symptoms and slow the progression of the disease. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a noninvasive diagnostic technique for brain disorders. It measures minute changes in blood oxygen levels within the brain over time, giving insight into the local activity of neurons.

New AI system able to detect Alzheimer's early - Pune Mirror

Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can detect early forms of Alzheimer's disease by combining machine learning methods with a special MRI technique. Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that allows computer programmes to learn when exposed to new data without being programmed. Researchers coupled machine learning methods with a special magnetic resonance imaging (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). "MRI can help with the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. However, the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is problematic," said Alle Meije Wink, from the VU University Medical Centre in Amsterdam.


Artificial Intelligence May Aid in Alzheimer's Diagnosis

Machine learning is a type of artificial intelligence that allows computer programs to learn when exposed to new data without being programmed. 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, Ph.D., from the VU University Medical Centre in Amsterdam. "However, the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease is problematic." 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 show up on imaging results.
