Alzheimer’s Disease, through the eyes of a hyperspectral camera

Imec’s hyperspectral snapshot camera is used by researchers from KU Leuven and the university hospital to study protein accumulation in the retina of Alzheimer’s patients.


What if Alzheimer’s could be detected in a very early stage, only with an eye examination? Belgian biologists (KU Leuven), ophthalmologists (UZ Leuven) and engineers (VITO and imec) believe this is possible. Together, they aim to develop a rapid, user-friendly, and affordable test for diagnosing Alzheimer’s.
