"Another milestone is that never again will a doctor have to say, 'we can't tell for sure until your loved one dies and we look at the brain during an autopsy,'" Gandy said.

"On the downside, while scanning of healthy 'worried well' people is explicitly discouraged and disapproved, that is already happening and I am not sure that these guidelines will attenuate that demand," he said. "Persistent people will always find someone to write the script. So, this challenge remains."
