Möglichkeiten moderner Bildgebungstechnologien im Rahmen der Frühdiagnostik von Alzheimererkrankung


Unschuld, Paul G (2015). Möglichkeiten moderner Bildgebungstechnologien im Rahmen der Frühdiagnostik von Alzheimererkrankung. Therapeutische Umschau. Revue thérapeutique, 72(4):261-269.

Abstract

Recent advances in neuroimaging technology and image analysis algorithms have significantly contributed to a better understanding of spatial and temporal aspects of brain change associated with Alzheimer Disease. The current review will demonstrate how functional (fMRI) and structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques may be used to identify distinct patterns of brain change associated with disease progression and also increased risk for Alzheimer Disease. Moreover, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) based measures of glucosemetabolism (Fluorodeoxyglucose, FDG) and Amyloid-beta plaque density (11-C-Pittsburgh Compound B, PiB and 18-F) will be reviewed regarding their diagnostic value for assessing the individual degree of Alzheimer -pathology and thus complement the information provided by MRI and other clinical measures.
