Advanced Brain Imaging Technology Reveals Early Diagnostic Clues For Alzheimer's Disease, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Study


5/4/2012 7:52:02 AM

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a major neurodegenerative disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. New and accurate techniques for early diagnosis are critical. Pravat K. Mandal, PhD, and his colleagues have developed a completely non-invasive brain imaging technique to measure specific brain chemical changes. This provides a signature of the early stages of AD from the hippocampal region of the brain. Their work is reported in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
