Can Retinal Imaging Enable Earlier Detection of Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease?

August 21, 2016

Researchers in London recently published a study describing how they used retinal imaging techniques to detect Parkinson’s Disease in rodents. The technique may yield an eye test that can be used to detect Parkinson’s Disease in humans earlier than current diagnostic tests, thus enabling earlier intervention.
