Proposed Analysis: Our aim in this study is developing machine learning based algorithms (e.g. convolutional neural networks) to identify Alzheimer in early stages and to track the progression of the disease. We would like to use MRI and PET images in ADNI dataset. We will quantitatively analyze the brain structures (e.g. volume of hippocampus) in MRI sequences and identify imaging biomarkers. The follow up MRI scans in the dataset would be useful to develop algorithms to track the progression of Alzheimer`s disease. In addition to MRI, we are also considering incorporating biomarker data from PET images which may increase the predictive accuracy of the proposed system.
