This new super-resolution technique allows obtaining more detailed brain images and could detect Alzheimer’s

A new imaging technique has the potential to detect neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, in its earliest stages, allowing doctors to diagnose and treat patients more quickly . The imaging methodology, called super-resolution, combines positional emission tomography (PET) with an external motion tracking device to create highly detailed images of the brain. PET In … Read more

Alzheimer’s disease can now be detected during phone conversations thanks to machine learning

Three algorithms that can be used to detect Alzheimer’s disease in patients while having telephone conversations have been developed by researchers working at the Department of Public Health, McCann Healthcare Worldwide Japan Inc. Previous research has shown that some of the first signs of Alzheimer’s include speaking slower than normal and pausing more frequently during … Read more

GPS-recorded driving habits can help identify Alzheimer’s disease thanks to AI

People with Alzheimer’s disease often drive shorter distances and visit fewer new places than people without it . With this in mind, GPS data can serve as a biomarker to identify preclinical Alzheimer’s, according to the results of a study published in Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy . The participants, 75 people without preclinical Alzheimer’s and … Read more
