    10 days ago - By Healio

    A study published in Radiology showed that a deep learning model predicted Alzheimer's disease with 82% specificity and 100% sensitivity about 6 years before diagnosis by using fluorine 18 fluorodeoxyglucose PET imaging studies of the brain.
    "Differences in the pattern of glucose uptake in the brain are very subtle and diffuse," Jae Ho Sohn, MD, from the department of radiology & biomedical imaging at the University of California, San Francisco, said in a press release. "People are good at finding specific biomarkers of disease, but metabolic changes represent a more global and
