FDG and PIB biomarker PET analysis for the Alzheimer's disease detection using Association Rules

This work shows an Association Rule (AR)-based approach in order to design a computer aided diagnosis (CAD) system for the Alzheimer's disease (AD) detection with a 18F-FDG and Pittsburg Compound B (PiB) PET (Positron Emission Tomography) biomarker analysis. The AD Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) 1 dataset is used for testing and a comparison is conducted in… CONTINUE READING
