The criteria, first published in January 2013, are the product of a collaborative effort between the Alzheimer's Association and SNMMI, which together assembled an Amyloid Imaging Taskforce (AIT) that reviewed scientific literature and developed consensus recommendations for clinical use of PET in diagnosing Alzheimer's. The AIT concluded that amyloid imaging could potentially be helpful in the diagnosis of people with cognitive impairment when considered along with other clinical information, when performed according to standardized protocols by trained staff, and if the presence or absence of amyloid would increase certainty in the diagnosis and alter the treatment plan.

"Clinicians, after using this technology for some months, had invaluable suggestions, which we have incorporated into the criteria in order to increase the value and cost-effectiveness of this breakthrough technology as a tool for use in diagnosing Alzheimer's."

"The establishment of these criteria is an outstanding example of exactly the kind of collaboration that will be needed in order to better and more quickly diagnose and treat Alzheimer's disease," said Carrillo.
