Alzheimer’s Awareness and Brain Imaging

June is Alzheimer’s awareness month and it’s the perfect chance to shed a light on brain awareness and this disease. Throughout this month, the Alzheimer’s Association spreads the word about this disease and encourages people everywhere to train their brains to fight this disease. As research evolves, techniques in neuroimaging do as well. The most common type of imaging used in the early detection of Alzheimer’s includes MRI and CT scanning.

Imaging can detect and therefore track whether the brain has shown shrinkage. This is usually a sign of Alzheimer’s progression and medical imaging equipment plays a big part in keeping track of the disease. Structural imaging equipment such as MRI Machines can show tumors, strokes, head trauma, or build-up of fluid in the brain. Another way to identify progress in this disease is with CT scanners.

CT scans help detect the loss of brain mass which can be related to Alzheimer’s. Without a doubt, an important part of detecting and tracking this disease involves medical imaging equipment.
