Resumen

Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative cognitive, affective, and behavioral disorder aligned to the aging process and other coronary diseases. To contribute to the early diagnosis of the disease, a neuroimaging treatment is implemented through a preprocessing to subsequently calculate the fractal dimension associated with these images in order to propose an alternative to the one proposed in medical physics through positron emission tomography. In this work, a comparative analysis is made of a previous work using the Box Counting methodology versus the calculation of the fractal dimension by means of software developed by the researchers based on the same method. The differences between the fractal dimensions of the neuroimages of control patients and patients with the presence of the disease are maintained showing a lower value of fractal dimension in patients with the disease due to the physical deterioration of the brain.
