Es gibt jedoch kein objektives Mittel, mit dem man von Anfang an auf die Krankheit testen kann. TED Fellow Max Little, in der angewandten Mathematik tätig, testet ein einfaches, günstiges Instrument, das die Krankheit mit 99-prozentiger Genauigkeit während eines 30-Sekunden-Anrufs feststellen kann.
