New Delhi: A researchers team has come up with a brain scanner that can be helpful in detecting weight loss success.
This non-invasive brain scanner can predict the weight loss success based on the brain volume of the elderly.
According to the study published in the journal Obesity, scientists at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have found a way to predict who will be successful in their weight-loss efforts with a quick, non-invasive brain scan.
"A simple test that can predict intentional weight loss success using structural braincharacteristics could ultimately be used to tailor treatment for patients," said Jonathan Burdette, Professor at the Wake Forest School of Medicine, at Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in the US.
"For example, people identified at high risk for failure might benefit from intensive treatment and close guidance. People identified as having a high probability for success might best respond to less intensive treatment," Burdette added.
