New England Researchers Developing Eye Scan To Catch Alzheimer ’ s Early
KINGSTON, R.I. (CBS) – Researchers in New England are developing a screening process that could help detect Alzheimer’s disease decades before any symptoms appear. The University of Rhode Island and Butler Hospital in Providence have announced a five-year clinical trial to develop a low-cost and less-invasive retinal scan. They hope the scan will allow doctors to identify the signs of Alzheimer’s 20 years or more before symptoms develop. Microscopic changes in the retina could indicate that changes are also taking place in the brain that put someone at high risk for the disease. URI, @BayCare, and @ButlerHospital ar...

Google ’s AI Bested Doctors in Detecting Breast Cancer in Mammograms
While there has been controversy over when and how often women should be screened for breast cancer using mammograms, studies consistently show that screening can lead to earlier detection of the disease, when it’s more treatable. So improving how effectively mammograms can detect abnormal growths that could be cancerous is a priority in the field. AI could play a role in accomplishing that—computer-based machine learning might help doctors to read mammograms more accurately. In a study published Jan. 1 in Nature, researchers from Google Health, and from universities in the U.S. and U.K., report on an AI model ...
