PredictND public session

The PredictND session is a deliverable of PredictND WP6. Its aim is to disseminate the results of PredictND in-depth to a wide public (including clinicians, care personnel, industry, patients and the general public). It was held in conjunction with the Alzheimer Europe conference in Berlin, Germany on 4th of October 2017.

The programme of the PredictND public session covered the objectives and main results of the project: Project goals were introduced by the scientific coordinator. Thereafter mainly WP leaders and key researchers presented the project results and their impact in clinical work: clinical needs and requirements for diagnostics, the decision support system and its validation, image analysis and biomarkers, demo of the decision support tool as part of clinical workflow.
