New imaging technique could help with early detection of Alzheimer's disease

New imaging technique could help with early detection of Alzheimer's disease

Various types of information can be ascertained by the way blood flows through the brain. When a region of the brain has been activated, blood flow increases and oxygenation rises. By observing variations in blood flow with the help of non-invasive imaging, it is possible to determine which regions are at work at a given point in time and how they work together. [More]
