Raman Hyperspectroscopy Shows Promise for Diagnosis of Alzheimer’s

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

In early studies, a fast, nondestructive technique allows for the differentiation of patients with Alzheimer’s disease from healthy individuals and patients with other types of dementia.

NICOLE RALBOVSKY AND IGOR K. LEDNEV, UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY, SUNY

Raman hyperspectroscopy combined with advanced statistics is uniquely suitable for characterizing microheterogeneous systems. Understanding the structure and biochemical composition of samples at the microscopic level is important for many practical applications, including various bioanalytical tasks. The great potential of Raman hyperspectroscopy for medical diagnostics is based on its ability to integrate the impact of multiple biomarkers in a specific spectroscopic signature. This approach was used for the development of a minimally invasive method for diagnosing Alzheimer’s...Read full article
