Non-invasive MRI methods can detect early signs of Alzheimer's disease

View recent interviews with Mallar Chakravarty and Christine Tardif  on CTV and Global Montreal about a study about a new detection method for early signs of Alzheimer's disease.  The study, done in collaboration with the many researchers of the Douglas Hospital Research Centre, shows that non-invasive brain imaging techniques can be used to detect early signs of Alzheimer's disease, thereby opening the door to treatments and lifestyle changes that could potentially prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
