Could an eye scan detect signs of Alzheimer’s disease?

Researchers from the Duke Eye Center (NC, USA) have indicated that a new, non-invasive imaging device could see signs of Alzheimer’s disease in a matter of seconds.

In the study, which has been published in Ophthalmology Retina, the investigators found that the small blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye are altered in people with Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, they revealed that it may be possible to distinguish between people with Alzheimer’s and those with mild cognitive impairment.
