Alzeimers disease using image processing brain


—As reported by the the Alzheimers Association there are more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimers today with an anticipated 16 million by 2050. The neurodegenerative disease is currently the 6th leading source of death in the US. In 2017 this disease would cost the nation $1.1 trillion. 1 in 3 seniors die in Alzheimers disease or another dementia. It kills more than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. [14] As of the this papers writing detecting Alzheimers is a difficult and time consuming task but requires brain imaging report and human expertise. Needless to say this conventional approach to detect Alzheimers is costly and often error prone. In this paper an alternative approach has been discussed that is fast costs less and more reliable. Deep Learning represents the true bleeding edge of Machine Intelligence. Convolutional Neural Networks are biologically inspired Multilayer perceptron specially capable of image processing. In this paper we present a state of the art Deep Convolutional Neural Network to detect Alzheimers Disease and Dementia from 3D MRI image.
