Educational Objectives
Neuroimaging and Early Diagnosis of Alzheimer Disease: A Look to the Future
  • Describe the pathological components which increase as progressive damage occurs to neurons in the patients with AD;
  • Review the diagnostic criteria used in the clinical evaluation of patients with AD, as well as aid in differentiating AD from other forms of dementia;
  • Access the role of conventional CT and MR imaging in quantifying structural changes which occur in the progression of AD;
  • Evaluate the role of functional neuroimaging techniques (SPECT, PET, MR) in differentiating AD from other forms of dementia; and the potential these techniques may have in identifying earlier stages of AD.
