Overview

This practical guide contains all the science and clinical information needed to help the reader make informed decisions about the applications of brain PET to improve the care of patients with symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. Beginning with an introduction to goals and limitations of the clinical evaluation of dementia, Dr. Dan Silverman and his distinguished group of contributors cover the role of functional imaging, clinical interpretation of brain FDG-PET scans, FDG-PET in the evaluation of early dementia, microstructural imaging of neurodegenerative changes, amyloid imaging, imaging non-neurodegenerative causes of cognitive impairment, tools for assisting PET scan interpretation in the clinical setting, and PET evaluation of central motor disorders. There is also a complete collection of clinical cases that practitioners are likely to encounter in their daily practice. Enhanced with numerous PET brain scans throughout, this book fills a rapidly growing need in the medical imaging field.
