FDDNP: From mild cognitive impairment to Alzeimer's disease

FDDNP: From mild cognitive impairment to Alzeimer's disease

Baseline and follow-up brain scans of a patient who developed Alzheimer's disease after two years (images to right of white line) that shows high medial temporal binding at baseline (lower left) and follow-up (lower right), but also demonstrates more baseline binding in frontal (upper images) and lateral temporal regions. Warmer colors (yellows, reds indicate higher binding levels. A second patient (left) did not convert to Alzheimer's after two years (images to left of white line); images show medial temporal (lower scans), but very mild frontal (upper scans) binding at baseline and follow-up.
