Doctors could use artificial intelligence to diagnose dementia more accurately and give better treatment, scientists say. Researchers have invented a computer algorithm which can analyse MRI brain scans and learn how to recognise different types of dementia. They say that although many types of the brain-destroying condition have similar symptoms, they respond
