Correlation of flortaucipir tau positron emission tomography with autopsy-confirmed pathology

Takeaway

  • Flortaucipir (FTP) tau-positron emission tomography (FTP-PET) reliably correlated with autopsy-confirmed disease diagnosis, Braak tangle staging, and quantitative immunohistochemistry.

Why this matters

    This study adds to the body of literature validating FTP-PET as a non-invasive biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
