Department: Biomedical engineering
Proposed Analysis: Good evening, My main interest in obtaining the database is to investigate patterns that can be used to determine the presence of Alzheimer's disease in an early stage, using different image databases available through neural networks. Additionally, I would like to address the issue of explainability, as many models I have observed lack transparency in decision-making processes. This makes it difficult to adapt any application to a clinical environment, as these solutions must be a tool to support medical professionals. Therefore, a tool that provides the considerations taken into account to make a decision would be highly beneficial. I plan to carry out this investigation using MRI and PET images, where different brain atrophies and alterations in PET-Tau and PET-Amyloid deposits can be identified. Additionally, textual data would be useful for the development of the model. The purpose of obtaining your database is to establish and develop the foundations of said model and present the results as a final project for an artificial intelligence diploma program that I am currently studying at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). I also intend to present the project in a course for the Master's Degree in Biomedical Engineering that I am studying at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (PUCP). Thank you in advance for your help. Best regards, Arturo Linares
