 Study shows feasibility of noninvasive retinal imaging for screening people at risk of AD
 
Study shows feasibility of noninvasive retinal imaging for screening people at risk of ADAlzheimer's disease (AD) represents the leading cause of dementia worldwide. Currently, challenges in making an early and definitive diagnosis of AD limit opportunities to intervene with disease-modifying therapies before substantial neurodegeneration occurs.
