Do you have signs or symptoms of Alzheimer's Disease or Other Dementia?

Alzheimer's web graphicThe most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, causes problems with memory, thinking skills and behavior. It  is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that eventually denies the person the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. That’s why it’s critical to detect Alzheimer’s disease early to delay its progression. CereScan’s qSPECT (quantitative Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography) can help show early signs of Alzheimer’s before the onset of significant symptoms.
