Early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease is challenging, and often not diagnosed many years into the disease. But research has shown that changes in glucose in certain parts of the brain can be associated with Alzheimer’s, that can be detected with a new type of imaging called F-D-G Pet scan. Earlier diagnosis can be the most effective in treatmen. A new study looked at creating and training a deep learning computer algorithm to recognize changes predictive of Alzheimer’s on this special scan. The study is published in Radiology.
