Statement of need

The Alzheimer’s Imaging Consortium 2014 is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among health care, research, clinical and administrative professionals concerned with aging and Alzheimer’s disease. In addition to the core plenary sessions and symposia, oral and poster sessions will be presented to encourage and stimulate diverse viewpoints in research, treatment and care.

Target audience

All clinicians involved in the care or research of individuals with memory or other cognitive complaints, including but not limited to neurologists, psychiatrists, radiologists, geriatricians, neuropsychologists, physicians and nurses; as well as researchers, industry and regulatory agency stakeholders, and others involved in the use of imaging techniques in the study of Alzheimer’s disease, related disorders and normal aging.

Learning objectives

At the end of this educational activity, attendees should be able to:

  1. Appreciate the importance of structural, functional and amyloid imaging in the study of Alzheimer’s disease.
  2. Explain how technological developments of imaging methods can be leveraged in the scientific understanding, early detection and tracking of Alzheimer’s disease and the evaluation of promising treatments.
  3. Recognize new developments in multimodality imaging approaches and challenges involved in using these techniques in the scientific study and clinical evaluation of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders.
  4. Discuss the application of imaging techniques to the basic sciences (animal studies, genetics, pathology, etc.) for the understanding of brain function in health and disease.
