Russia develops network to detect Alzheimer’s disease and dementia

Moscow, Jun 10 (Prensa Latina) NtechLab director Aleksei Palamarchuk reported on Monday that the company is developing a neural network for early detection of Alzheimer's illnesses, dementia, and other neurodegenerative diseases.

TASS reported that according to Palamarchuk, using video analysis studies based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), the brain changes that lead to these diseases can be identified ten years before the clinical manifestations appear and preventive treatment can begin.

Right now, we have created the neural network that will help identify degenerative changes in the brain, such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, he said.

Palamarchuk explained that the neural network, trained with top doctors from major Russian hospitals and medical centers, will process the brain’s images by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

NtechLab announced earlier that it had received a certificate for a neural network to help physicians diagnose ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.
