Registration and machine learning methods for brain imaging of Alzheimer's disease

Abstract:

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is an irreversible neurodegenerative disorder, characterised by memory loss and reduced cognitive function. One of the pathologic biomarkers of AD is the presence of neuritic plaques composed of beta amyloid peptides. Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging is increasingly used to assess the amyloid burden in patients with dementia, and therefore, tools for analysing amyloid PET scans could aid clinicians when diagnosing and treating AD. For this reason, t...
