Final Year Project

Pre-detection of Alzheimer’s Disease from Neuroimaging Data Using Image Processing and Convolutional Neural Networks.

Early detection of Alzheimer’s disease is seen as important because treatment may be most efficacious if introduced as early as possible. But currently diagnosis is largely based on clinical history and examination supported by neuropsychological evidence of the pattern of cognitive impairment. But this is time consuming and diagnosis accuracy is less. The aim of this project is to overcome the problem of pre-detecting Alzheimer’s disease using image processing techniques, Convolutional Neural Networks and neuroimaging data.
