Amyvid Brain Scan
Amyloid Brain PET Scan for Alzheimer's Disease
Precision Imaging was the first radiology center in Maryland to offer and perform the new Amyvid brain PET scan. The Amyvid scan is the first FDA approved in vivo test for the detection of the β-amyloid plaques that are deposited in the brains of patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease.
The introduction of the Amyvid scan is an important breakthrough in the detection of Alzheimer's disease. Studies show that Amyvid is likely to detect the presence of β-amyloid plaques in the brain earlier and more accurately than any other brain imaging study —even before the patient develops any symptoms of Alzheimer's disease! Early and accurate diagnosis will be important in clinical efforts at slowing down the progression of this disease, and eventually in developing an effective treatment.
