Alzheimer's is a treacherous, incurable disease. Researchers now want to use artificial intelligence to detect the first signs up to ten years earlier.
Researchers at the University of Bari (Italy) have apparently found a new way to use artificial intelligence in Alzheimer's diagnosis, reports Nev Scientist. Early detection can delay the effects of the disease, doctors hope.
The algorithm detects small structural changes in the brain. They are caused by diseases. AI manages to recognize these 10 years before the first symptoms appear (memory disorder, speech loss).
Researchers have a computer according to a report with 67 MRT scan dressed. 32 were from people with Alzheimer's, 29 from healthy volunteers. They were provided with a database from the University of Southern California, Los Angeles. In the second round, those with more MR imagesT scan Fed.
Hit the rate of 86 and 84 percent
Result: AI was able to distinguish a healthy person and one with Alzheimer with 86 percent accuracy. The first signs realized that it was 84 percent correct.
According to researchers, it might have been possible for the AU to detect disease earlier, but additional testing is needed.
