Educational Session: Neuroimaging of ADRD: Amyloid- and Tau-PET

Recorded on Oct. 8, 2020
Part of the Neuroimaging PIA educational series, this webinar provides an overview of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging to detect the pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s: amyloid plaques and tau tangles. Presentations introduce the targeted neuropathologies and existing radiotracers, and discuss the clinical use of PET and relationships to fluid biomarkers.

Speakers:
Gil Rabinovici and Michael Scholl
