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.

The news follows an announcement in July of the start of clinical trials to use a retinal imaging technology for earlier detection of Alzheimer’s Disease before the onset of symptoms [2].
