Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neuro-degenerative disorder characterized by the gradual onset of dementia.
An MRI can detect brain abnormalities and can be used to predict which patients may eventually develop Alzheimer's disease. In the early stages of Alzheimer's disease, an MRI scan of the brain may be normal. In later stages, MRI may show a decrease in the size of different areas of the brain.
Dr. Phil Chao returns to share some of the dramatic insights that 3T MRI imaging can detect and predict about Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neuro-degenerative diseases that seem to be escalating a in modern societies.
