In Greece, as in other countries, there is an increase of neurodegenerative diseases, predominantly Alzheimer’s Disease – mainly because of the aging population.[1] Although it is the neurologist who is responsible for the diagnosis, radiology is playing an increasingly important role. This is manifest in the work of radiologist Andreas Papadopoulos, MD, PhD, scientific coordinator at Iatropolis Medical Group, who has come to appreciate the benefits of artificial intelligence.

Early detection is crucial

Close cooperation with neurology

Objective framework for medical diagnosis

A big benefit is the software providing an objective framework on which one can base a subjective assessment during an examination.

Outlook for research
