Artificial intelligence for differential diagnosis of dementia - Nature Medicine
Using routinely collected multimodal clinical data, we developed an artificial intelligence (AI) model to identify dementia and determine factors causing it, including mixed dementias and Alzheimer’s disease. The model’s predictions were confirmed with biomarker evidence and neuropathological findings, and we show that the AI model, when used in conjunction with neurologist assessments, outperformed neurologist assessments alone.

A recent study published in Nature Medicine has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) model to identify dementia and determine the factors causing it, including mixed dementias and Alzheimer’s disease. The model's predictions were confirmed with biomarker evidence and neuropathological findings, and it was shown that the AI model, when used in conjunction with neurologist assessments, outperformed neurologist assessments alone. This research provides a promising development in the field of dementia diagnosis and could potentially improve patient care in the future.
