News Releases & Research Results

Outline

The results of the collaborative research project conducted by Professor Masahiro Akishita and Research Associate Yumi Kameyama of the Department of Geriatric Medicine, the University of Tokyo Hospital and Director Masashi Kameyama of the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Tokyo Metropolitan Geriatric Hospital and Institute of Gerontology.

The key results of this research project are as follows:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) was demonstrated to distinguish the face photos of patients with cognitive decline from those of healthy individuals for the first time in the world.
  • The results of this research project allow the early detection of dementia by facial complexion and should provide non-invasive, rapid, and inexpensive screening.

This project was conducted with the support of the Research and Development Grants for Dementia by AMED.

The results were published online in the American scientific journal Aging on January 26.
