A number of methods are used to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease. Common examinations include brain MRI* and the PET** tests, which can be used to demonstrate amyloid presence.
*MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
**PET (Positron Emission Tomography)
Neurona PET makes use of a specific MRI and PET calculation algorithm, resulting in the fusion of the results of these exams. Our algorithm is currently learning:
- To define the amount of amyloid in the brain
- To quantify changes over time where there are repeated examinations
- To specify the region / localization within brain
