MR spectroscopy helps diagnose Alzheimer's disease

U.S. and Indian researchers have developed a method to diagnose early Alzheimer's disease using multivoxel 31P MR spectroscopy and an advanced analytical system. The study, published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, found that in patients with the disease, the part of the brain that plays a role in memory, the left hippocampus, becomes alkaline, while it becomes acidic with age in patients who do not have the disease. The researchers plan to conduct bigger studies to further explore the test.
