Figure 2: Atrophy caused by Alzheimer's Disease processes can be visualized using structural imaging techniques such as T1-weighted MRI scans. Areas such as the medial temporal lobe (outlined in white) are not severely affected in normal aging (A - from a 74-year-old healthy female) and are especially affected in AD (B - from a 72-year-old female with moderate AD - GDS190 = 4).
