Laser eye scanning shows promise as diagnostic tool for Alzheimer's

April 15, 2008, Acton, MA--A non-invasive procedure that combines laser-induced scatter and fluorescence measurements to detect the presence of a specific protein known to accumulate in the brain and eyes of Alzheimer's patients is showing encouraging results in laboratory work, according to research presented earlier this month at the annual conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.
