Screening for Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson's Disease: Improving the Diagnostic Utility of the MoCA through Subtest Weighting

A European multicentre PET study of fibrillar amyloid in Alzheimer’s disease

To serve as an early biomarker in AD the amyloid PET tracers need to be analysed in multicentre clinical studies. Methods In this study 238 [11C]Pittsburgh compound-B (PIB) datasets from five different European centres were pooled. Of these 238...
