BU School of Medicine Leveraging Deep Learning Algorithm to Help With Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

Digital Health News (from The Brink) – Alzheimer’s disease is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and presents itself in various forms, making it hard to diagnose the disease early. Boston University School of Medicine assistant professor, Vijaya Kolachalama is using a deep learning algorithm to make predictions easier and accurate. It relies on several indicators, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain scans, age, gender, and scores on the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) to measure cognitive impairment.
