The Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium (AIC), a preconference to the Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC), will focus on the clinical application and methodological development of neuroimaging (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT and others) to Alzheimer's disease, other dementias and normal brain aging. The program consists of invited speakers, as well as oral and poster presentations from submitted abstracts. Submit your abstract for AIC.
