MRI Technique Detects Evidence of Cognitive Decline Before Symptoms Appear
Dementia affects more than 35 million people worldwide, a number expected to more than double by 2030.
A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique can detect signs of cognitive decline in the brain even before symptoms appear, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology. The technique has the potential to serve as a biomarker in very early diagnosis of preclinical dementia.
