Leadership Through Research Collaboration Is Reflected In Articles Published In Alzheimer's Association Journal
Date:7/18/2013

the AIT has further refined its definition of a dementia expert: someone who is self-identified as a physician trained and board-certified in neurology, psychiatry, or geriatric medicine, who devotes a substantial portion (at least 25 percent patient contact) of his or her practice to the evaluation and care of adult patients with acquired cognitive impairment or dementia. To ensure appropriate use of amyloid PET and to standardize referrals, the AIT also developed a checklist to assure that patients considered for amyloid PET have completed a standard clinical evaluation and treatment of comorbidities before imaging is ordered.
  • Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). The updated guidelines specify which patients with MCI may be appropriately referred to amyloid PET: those with documented persistent or progressive unexplained MCI who the dementia expert has concluded would benefit from greater certainty of the underlying pathology and whose clinical management would change as a result of this certainty.
  • Education. To ensure appropriate use of amyloid PET, the AIT recommends a number of professional educational activities offered through AA and SNMMI, including national and local meetings, educational materials, and educational outreach sessions at meetings of professional societies.
  • About the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging
    The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) is an international scientific and medical organization dedicated to raising public awareness about nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, a vital element of today's medical practice that adds an additional dimension to diagnosis, changing the way common and devastating diseases are understood and treated and helping provide patients with the best health care possible. SNMMI's more than 19,000 members set the standard for molecular imaging and nuclear medicine practice by creating guidelines, sharing information through journals
