Deep learning algorithm detects Alzheimer’s up to six years before doctors

A new deep learning algorithm has been developed that can study PET scan images and detect the onset of Alzheimer’s six years earlier than current diagnostic methods. The research is part of a new wave of work using machine learning technology to identify subtle patterns in complex medical imaging.
