Northwest Radiology Network, P.C.
PET-CT TRACER TO HELP DIAGNOSE ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE . . .
AND MEMORY DISTURBANCES
Northwest Radiology Network, P.C. is excited to announce that the first and only FDA-approved PET-CT tracer, Amyvid (Florbetapir, produced by Eli Lilly), is now available for use in testing patients that are being evaluated for Alzheimer’s disease and other causes of cognitive decline. Until now, only a neuropathological exam (performed during an autopsy) could definitively diagnose Alzheimer’s disease.
Amyvid is injected intravenously prior to having the PET-CT scan. It crosses the blood-brain barrier, binds to the beta amyloid plaques – which are then detected by the PET-CT scan. The actual scan takes approximately ten minutes and there is no special preparation for the patient to follow. Board Certified Neuroradiologists from Northwest Radiology in Indianapolis will interpret the scan and have been through FDA-required reader training designed specifically for this test to ensure accurate image interpretation.
