Alzheimer’s disease

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans use radioactive tracers (radiopharmaceuticals) to assess bodily functions and to diagnose and treat disease. “In highly specialized research centers for Alzheimer’s disease,” Healey says, “researchers have used the combination of beta-amyloid on the PET scan and blood or CSF [cerebrospinal fluid] biomarkers to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease.”
