Alzheimer’s disease (AD), also known as just Alzheimer’s, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that  usually  starts  slowly  and  gets  worse  over  time . Advanced  medical  imaging  with  magnetic  resonance imaging   (MRI)   can   be  used  to  help  exclude  other cerebral  pathology  or  subtypes  of  dementia .
The primary role of MRI in the diagnosis of Alzheimer disease is the assessment of volume change in characteristic locations which can yield a diagnostic accuracy of up to 87%.  Volumetric MRI can detect changes in the size of brain regions. Measuring those regions that atrophy during the progress of Alzheimer’s disease is showing promise as a diagnostic indicator. It may prove less expensive than other imaging methods currently under study.
