Dementia can be diagnosed in one day

The system can also predict that a disease will remain unchanged for years, worsen slowly, or require immediate treatment. Currently, a number of brain recordings and tests are required to diagnose dementia. Researchers say early diagnosis greatly improves patients’ odds.

“If we intervene early, the progression of the disease slows down, so further damage can be prevented. Symptoms may appear at a later age, or may not occur at all,” he was quoted as saying. BBC News portal Zoe Kurzi from the University of Cambridge and the Alan Turing Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.

Professor Kurtzy’s system compares brain recordings and findings from patients suspected of having dementia with thousands of patients who have already been diagnosed. The algorithm is able to identify patterns on the recordings that even experienced neuroscientists don’t see and searches its database for expected predictions.

In preclinical tests, AI was able to diagnose dementia years before symptoms appear, even if it Damage There were no obvious signs.

Clinical tests at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and other memory clinics in the UK are looking at whether the method, along with traditional diagnostic tools, works in a hospital setting. Approximately 500 patients are expected to attend in the first year.
