Neuroimaging in diseases that cause dementia

Friday, 23 August 2019 (programme)

  • The Day 2 meeting will focus on brain imaging in cognitive impairment, contribution of imaging to clinical diagnosis, and the role of image analysis/artificial intelligence in aiding diagnosis. Research presentations from SINAPSE members will be intermixed with invited talks including a presentation on Neuroimaging biomarker discovery in UK Biobank from Fidel Alfaro Almagro (University of Oxford) and a debate addressing the question, "Is 'dementia' still a useful diagnosis?" Cross-over with the topic of Day 1 includes a presentation on the role of Neuroimaging in Secondary Prevention of AD dementia from EPAD fellow Silvia Ingala (VUmc Amsterdam).
