About us

The aging population is becoming an increasing socio-economical issue that needs to be addressed in order to sustain that demographic shift. It is therefore important to diagnose and treat as early as possible in order to live a healthy aging. Perceiv is a precision medicine company providing AI-based actionable biomarkers for the early detection of CNS diseases. We currently provide highly precise biomarkers of the progression to Alzheimer's dementia at a prodromal stage based on imaging.

Our expertise

Precision medicine

Personalize treatment using individual characteristics of your patients.

Predictive analytics

Outcome prediction based on clinical data.


Clinical trial

Reduce clinical trial cost using precision enrollment of patients.


Identification of preclinical population at high risk of future complications.


Clinical trial

Early prediction of Alzheimer's dementia

Population enrichment of clinical trials, using MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).

We provide highly precise biomarkers of the progression to Alzheimer's dementia at a prodromal stage based on anatomical only and anatomofunctional imaging. Those tools are aimed at population enrichment for clinical trials in Alzheimer's disease and carry the potential to be a cost-saving alternative to the current enrolment strategy as well as maximizing our ability to detect the effectiveness of drugs.
