Number of Years with Alzheimer`s
Can a CT scan determine how long a patient has been suffering from Alzheimer`s?
If you want to know if a CT scan can tell you how many years the disease has lasted, the answer is: NO, a CT scan cannot tell you. If you ask a more general question, for instance, is the disease "early" or "very advanced", then the MRI may be of help.
