Press release: From heterogeneous patient measurements towards earlier diagnosis in Alzheimer's disease

12/15/11

European PredictAD project, lead by Principal Scientist Jyrki Lötjönen from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, has developed a decision support tool for objective diagnostics of Alzheimer’s disease. The tool compares measurements of a patient to measurements of other persons available in large databases and provides a simple index about the severity of the disease. The project has shown that the tool improves the accuracy of diagnosis and clinicians’ confidence about their decision, making earlier diagnosis possible.
