2022 Boerger Research Fund for Alzheimer’s Disease and Neurocognitive Disorders
Our research is attempting to use an Artificial Intelligence model to convert MRI to PET. Successful completion of this project would have major clinical implications in offering an alternative to PET in the clinical workup of different diseases such as Alzheimer’s Dementia, Epilepsy, and Cancer. The Foundation grant has been essential in providing the funding necessary to perform the initial studies needed for proof of principle. This would be the necessary first step in conducting larger studies to validate this approach for clinical use.
