DISTINGUISHING PARKINSON'S DISEASE USING THE EYES

EyeBrain has announced that its eye-tracking system, Mobile Eye Brain Tracker (EBT), is available for the detection of Parkinson-plus diseases. Parkinson-plus syndromes have additional features that distinguish them from Parkinson's Disease. Different areas of the brain are involved in producing eye movements, and abnormalities that occur can be linked to dysfunction in certain areas of the brain. Results have shown that eye movements provide a more accurate early diagnosis than traditional clinical examinations.  The Mobile EBT is non-invasive and costs less than regularly used imaging techniques, such as MRI or x-rays.  For more information go to Eye Brain Tracker.

The equipment consists of : a recording device for high-frequency, accurate eye movement measurement, two screens, an introductory computer application for behavioural testing, and an automatic test analysis application. When an eye movement exam is conducted, the tests are displayed on a screen. The subject receives instructions on how to take the tests. The subject's eye movements are recorded while he takes the test. Once the tests are completed, the examiner may conduct a thoroughly automatic analysis, with the option of manually adjusting the results to enhance quality. Based on this analysis, an eye movement report is automatically printed to aid the examiner in diagnosing patients' possible illnesses. For more current news go to Parkinson's Disease News.
