A condition like chronic traumatic encephalopathy is only able to be diagnosed now after a patient has already died. New technology is being developed to help patients while they are still alive. These new techniques could also be used to help other conditions as well.

As more is learned about the condition Randy Kardon, MD, PhD, from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine said more can hopefully be done to address the needs of these patients earlier in their disease progression. Kardon discussed the condition during the annual meeting of The Association for Research in Vision and Opthalmology in Seattle.
