What will early diagnosis of dementia look like by 2020?

A patient enters the clinic. Mrs Aino is 55 years old, diabetic, hypertensive, obese and a smoker.

The neurologist assesses the risk of this person developing dementia, using as a knowledge base, a population cohort containing over 10,000 subjects.

The neurologist has access to the VPH-DARE@IT master tool that enables computation of a number of biomarkers and generates a vector of these parameters to calculate Mrs Aino’s individual risk of developing dementia.

The result of the analysis is a computation of an integrative and objective score, DSI, and a pictorial statistical representation, DSF, which provides Mrs Aino’s risk of developing each of the different forms of dementia within the next 3 years.
