Abstract

Alzheimer's disease is the most common age-related neurodegenerative disease, and the most common cause of dementia. It is estimated that 212,000 Australians suffer from dementia and this will rise to approximately 730,000 by 2050. Currently there are no definitive diagnostic methods for AD. The research proposed in this application describes the evaluation of a new imaging radiotracer that would be suitable for widespread non-invasive diagnosis of AD.
