Routine clinical assessments alone are limited in their ability to accurately diagnose Alzheimer's disease, but the timely and accurate use of diagnostic tools can help facilitate appropriate patient management, treatment decisions, and resource planning.1-3
What is TAUVID?
TAUVID is a diagnostic PET imaging radiotracer that estimates density and distribution of aggregated tau neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs).
What are neurofibrillary tangles?
Neurofibrillary tangles are aggregates of hyperphosphorylated tau protein deposited in the brain.4
How is TAUVID useful?
Positron emission tomography (PET) with TAUVID has the potential to augment the diagnostic process and help confirm the underlying neuropathological changes of Alzheimer's disease (AD) previously only available at autopsy.
The results of a TAUVID scan, in conjunction with other diagnostic information, may contribute meaningfully to the assessment of patients being evaluated for Alzheimer's disease.5-6
