PET Amyloid Scan Associated With Changes in MCI and Dementia Clinical Management

Positron emission tomography (PET) that detects amyloid-β plaques, according to a study published in JAMA.

This single-group, longitudinal study ( identifier: NCT02420756) included 11,409 Medicines beneficiaries (n = 4505) of dementia (n = 4504) of uncertain or unknown t considered. If you are interested in this, you will need to know whether or not you have developed dementia plans.

The primary end point was the composite change in the environment. Disease and non-Alzheimer's disease and vice versa.

Positive amyloid PET results were found in 55.3% of patients with dementia. 60.2% (95% CI, 59.1% -61.4%) of participants with MCI and 63.5% (95% CI, 62.1% -64.9%) of participants with dementiaP <.001, 1-sided for horse group). Disease in non-Alzheimer's disease in 25.1% (95% CI, 24.3% -25.9%) Alzheimer's disease in 10.5% (95% CI, 10.0% – 11.1%) of the participants.

The investigators suggested that the body has been changed after amyloid. PET with improved clinical outcomes.
