A cancer scanner could be used to identify some of the earliest and most difficult to diagnose forms of dementia, scientists have said.
Doctors at University Hospital of Wales (UHW) in Cardiff said its PET scanner could show signs of the condition in people who are not showing symptoms.
About 47% of people in Wales living with dementia do not have a diagnosis.
The Welsh Government said it is investing £10m a year in its dementia action plan (Source: BBC News).
