Imaging Study to Detect Amyloid in the Brain of People with Memory Problems
The purpose of this study is to test the ability of an experimental PET imaging compound to detect brain amyloid in people with memory problems. Amyloid is a protein associated with Alzheimer’s disease. At Rush University Medical Center, we expect to recruit approximately 10 people.
