Abstract

Alzheimer disease (AD) is a neurological disorder characterized by mild cognitive impairment and affects an individual’s quality of life. In this chapter, we explore two sets of advanced imaging analytic tools for quantitative detection of the important indicators of AD such as presence of White Matters Hyperintensities and diminished hippocampus. Case studies are used to further illustrate the scope of the use of these tools.
