Florbetapir uptake ratio may be useful amyloid monitoring metric

SNMMI SmartBrief | Mar 23, 2015

By measuring and comparing florbetapir uptake in specific regions of the brain, researchers were able to detect the progression of beta-amyloid plaque deposition in individuals with possible Alzheimer's disease, according to a study in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine. Analysis of baseline and 24-month follow-up PET scans of 332 people revealed that the ratio of uptake in the cerebral cortex to the cerebral white matter region was more consistent than ratios using other regions, and the metric correlated with neurocognitive test scores.
