Detecting Alzheimer's in a single brain scan

Scientists have developed a new breakthrough tech that can detect Alzheimer’s in a single brain scan. The tech uses machine learning and looks for structural features in the brain that are often associated with the disease.

The researchers published their findings on the tech in Communications Medicine in mid-June. While there is no cure for the disease, finding new ways to detect Alzheimer’s early can help scientists find ways to stave off the disease’s effects.

While not available now, this may be a game-changer in the future, as currently, the only way to positively identify Alzeimers's is in a postmortem.
