There are studies suggesting that machine learning techniques such as support vector machine (SVM) and fMRI can be used successfully in identifying patients 5 to 10 years before the onset of AD. However, there are some important items that has to be addressed: validation of machine learning and fMRI as in vitro diagnostic methods, access to that information (insurance companies, healthcare providers), high cost.
