Alzheimer’s disease: Imaging modalities to support diagnosis

This module presents a summary of the role of neuroimaging in clinical practice and its real-world application to support diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease.

The module reviews the use of structural imaging in the diagnostic journey and the assessment of atrophy and vascular changes with MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). It also describes the use of neuroimaging markers such as Amyloid PET (positron emission tomography) to support diagnosis. An introduction to amyloid PET tracers is provided as well as recommendations and guidelines on its clinical utility. To conclude, other imaging modalities are described.
