New Risk Index Shows Promising Results in Predicting Dementia in Older Adults

A team of medical doctors and engineers from Finland and Sweden has developed a new detection tool based on the novel machine learning approach that could identify comprehensive profiles for predicting dementia. The new tool, described in a paper published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, is a dementia risk index that can assess people’s risk of dementia and indicate the most relevant target areas for preventive measures. “The results of our study are very promising, as it is the first time this machine learning approach was used for estimating dementia risk in a cognitively normal general population,” said lead author Alina Solomon, of the University of Eastern Finland, in a press release. “The risk index was designed to support clinical decision making, and we are very keen on exploring…
