Hudson Valley Radiology Associates to Offer New Alzheimer's Disease Imaging Technique
Date:8/8/2012

NYACK, N.Y., Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudson Valley Radiology Associates (HVRA), a division of RadNet, Inc., a national market leader providing high-quality, cost-effective diagnostic imaging services through a network of 237 fully-owned and operated outpatient imaging centers, announced it will offer Amyvid™, a radioactive tracer used in positron emission tomography – computed tomography (PET/CT) imaging, at its Nyack location. Amyvid is the first test that can effectively rule out Alzheimer's disease (AD) in patients who are being evaluated for cognitive impairment.

Every patient with AD has increased levels of beta-amyloid plaque deposits in the brain at autopsy. Amyvid binds to beta-amyloid plaque and allows a PET/CT image to detect their presence. A positive Amyvid scan indicates moderate to frequent beta-amyloid plaques are present. While this amount of beta-amyloid plaque is present in patients with AD, it is also found in patients with other types of neurologic conditions and in older people with normal cognition.

"A negative Amyvid scan provides persuasive evidence AD is not the cause for a patient's observed cognitive decline," said Mark Geller M.D., Chief of Nuclear Medicine at Hudson Valley PET/CT and board certified radiologist. "This imaging technique will allow researchers to design more selective clinical trials for the next generation of treatment options."

Prior to the release of Amyvid PET/CT imaging, physicians had limited tools to definitively diagnose a patient with AD. More than 20 percent of AD cases are currently misdiagnosed. AD is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. Among the top 10 causes of death, AD is the only one that cannot be medically cured, prevented or slowed down. Between 2000 and 2008, U.S. AD d
