Analysis of Features of #Alzheimerโ€™s Disease: Detection of Early Stage from Functional Brain Changes in Magnetic #Resonance Images Using a Finetuned ResNet18 Network

One of the first signs of Alzheimerโ€™s disease (AD) is mild cognitive impairment (MCI), in which there are small variants of brain changes among the intermediate stages. Although there has been an increase in research into the diagnosis of AD in its early levels of developments lately, brain changes, and their complexity for functional magnetic …

#Metabolic Syndrome, and Not #Obesity, Is Associated with Chronic #Kidney Disease

Obese (OB) patients are at increased risk of chronic kidney disease, but it is still unclear whether this can be attributed to obesity per se or to the associated metabolic derangements. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relative impact of obesity and metabolic syndrome (MS) on kidney disease. Methods: This is a …
