WHAT CAN YOU MAKE WITH A PICTURE OF THE BETA-AMYLOID IN YOUR BRAIN? DECISIONS
Amyvid can help you and your doctor move forward with the diagnosis and management of your condition
Your doctor should consider a positive scan as evidence of significant beta-amyloid plaques in the brain.
Your doctor will consider the Amyvid scan results with other test results and observations to determine the appropriate next steps in diagnosis.
You and your doctor can work together to find the best way to manage your condition.
A negative scan means that it is unlikely that your symptoms are caused by Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Avoid unnecessary treatments that could result from an incomplete and/or incorrect diagnosis.
Together with your doctor, you can start looking into other possible causes of your symptoms.
Amyvid images should be interpreted only by doctors who have completed a special training program.
SELECT SAFETY INFORMATION
Risk for Misreading Scans and Other Errors
Errors may happen when Amyvid scan images are read. In clinical studies, a scan read as negative, when it was actually positive, accounted for most of these errors. An Amyvid scan only indicates whether beta-amyloid plaques, which are a buildup of proteins in the brain, are present at the time of the scan. Even if the scan is negative, it is possible to develop plaques in the future.
