Abstract

 

Amyloid and tau imaging with positron emission tomography (PET) plays a significant role in the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and the evaluation of therapeutic interventions. New PET image analysis techniques developed in my lab, utilize topographic features and spatial characteristics of radiotracer uptake to provide new perspectives on pathological (accumulation and clearance) and metabolic changes in the brain. These techniques use static PET scans without requiring intensity normalization and are therefore also relevant to several other conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) where the reference region uptake is affected by the injury/disorder.
