New Method can spot CTE brain disease in living patients  Until now, the disease, which brings on dementia, depression and personality changes, could only be confirmed through an autopsy.     Now, for the first time, researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles have figured out how to use a brain-imaging tool to identify the abnormal build-up of tau proteins -- the key marker of CTE -- in people showing early signs of the disease.

It's been called the 'holy grail' of brain research and now, it may have been found. scientists say they have developed a way to detect the concussion-related brain disease called CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, in living athletes.

All About CTE, the Brain Trauma Common in Football Players- So far, CTE has only been diagnosed after death, by examining the brain, so you can’t get a definitive diagnosis. Some football players with CTE-like symptoms have been diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and CTE symptoms may also overlap with other conditions that affect the brain. Researchers are trying to find out how to pin down a diagnosis and then treat it. But for now, there is no specific treatment for CTE.
