Alzheimer disease is a progressive neurologic disorder that causes the brain to shrink (atrophy) and brain cells to die. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia — a continuous decline in thinking, behavioral and social skills that affects a person’s ability to function independently.
The early signs of the disease include forgetting recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s disease will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to carry out everyday tasks.
Signs and symptoms of Alzheimer may include:
- At first, a person with Alzheimer’s disease may be aware of having difficulty remembering things and organizing thoughts
- Memory :- Repeat statements and questions over and over
- Thinking and reasoning :- It causes difficulty concentrating and thinking, especially about abstract concepts such as numbers.
- Making judgments and decisions :- It causes a decline in the ability to make reasonable decisions and judgments in everyday situations.
- Planning and performing familiar tasks :- Once-routine activities that require sequential steps, such as planning and cooking a meal or playing a favorite game, become a struggle as the disease progresses.
- Changes in personality and behavior :- Brain changes that occur in Alzheimer’s disease can affect moods and behaviors like Depression, Apathy, Social withdrawal, Mood swings, Distrust in others, Irritability and aggressiveness
- Preserved skills :- Preserved skills may include reading or listening to books, telling stories and reminiscing, singing, listening to music, dancing, drawing, or doing crafts.
To make the prediction you need to upload a PET SCAN, MRI, CT & Brain scan images.
The Model returns NORMAL if there is no sign of Alzheimer’s disease, and ALZHEIMER if it detects Alzheimer’s disease symptoms
