AI technique can boost brain scans to predict Alzheimer early

IANS Nov 08, 2018

Artificial intelligence (AI) can help improve the ability of brain imaging techniques to predict Alzheimer's disease early, according to a study.



Researchers from the University of California in San Francisco (UCSF) trained a deep learning algorithm on a special imaging technology known as 18-F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). They included more than 2,100 FDG-PET brain images from 1,002 patients and on an independent set of 40 imaging exams from 40...
