Alzheimer's Disease FDG PET Imaging Pattern in an Amyloid-Negative Mild Cognitive Impairment Subject.
The revised NIA-AA diagnostic criteria for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) due to AD make use of amyloid pathology and neurodegeneration biomarkers which increase the … diagnostic confidence in the majority of patients. However, in daily praxis, cases with conflicting biomarker constellations occur. A MCI subject underwent neuropsychological testing supplemented by FDG and amyloid PET/MRI as well as CSF sampling. In this subject, the biomarkers of Abeta deposition were negative. [18F]FDG PET, however, showed an AD-typical hypometabolism. Further studies are required to determine frequency and relevance of cases with neurodegeneration-first biomarker constellations to improve our understanding on pathogenesis and diagnosis of AD.
