Battery of Tests More Accurate When Detecting Alzheimer’s
A combination of tests may be the best way to diagnose Alzheimer's disease early.
Doctors at Duke gave patients an MRI and PET scan.
They also took spinal cord fluid to look for genetic markers.
Researchers found this approach was more accurate at detecting Alzheimer’s than current methods like memory tests and physical exams.
They admit the battery of tests is expensive, and more study is needed to confirm the findings.
