Scientists from California, USA have found a way to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease using artificial intelligence.
A study published in the journal Radiology.
The neural network analyzed the metabolism of the brain. In Alzheimer’s disease the rate of metabolism in certain areas of the nervous tissue slows down. Artificial intelligence has learned to detect these changes.
Alzheimer’s disease – what is it?
This is a disease that occurs in people in old age. It is characterized by the weakening of brain functions. Through this a person can not take care of themselves – it requires constant supervision and assistance.
The neural network is capable of tracking minimum disruption of the brain and is able to detect dementia at early stages.
These technologies allow us to recognize Alzheimer’s disease for 6 years before using tomography.
Artificial intelligence has recognized Alzheimer’s disease earlier than CT
Scientists say that this will increase the effectiveness of treatment. So, doctors will be able to slow or even stop the development of dementia.
