The Challenge

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease which affects life of numerous people yearly. The cause for most Alzheimer's cases is still mostly unknown except for 1% to 5% of cases where genetic differences have been identified.

The Solution

Machine learning techniques have capacity to identify changes in the brains of people likely to get Alzheimer’s disease almost a decade before doctors can diagnose the disease from symptoms alone.

Advanced ML algorithms use non-invasive MRI scans to identify alterations in how regions of the brain are connected by displacement field (DF) estimation between a normal brain and an AD brain. Analysis of the relevant medical imagery and associated point data proves helpful to medical practitioners in a clinical situation.
