Noninvasive retinal imaging may improve early detection of Alzheimer's disease

(JCI Journals) In this issue of JCI Insight, researchers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center adapted a noninvasive retinal imaging approach to characterize amyloid-? deposition, the pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease, in the retinas of patients and healthy controls. This imaging enabled detection and quantification of amyloid-?, revealing increased deposits in Alzheimer's patients compared to controls.
