Tau positron emission tomography patterns are specific to Alzheimer’s disease subtypes

Takeaway

  • There are distinct tau positron emission tomography patterns across the major atrophy-defined subtypes of Alzheimer’s disease.

Why this matters

    These findings increase our knowledge of the underlying tau positron emission tomography pattern of four atrophy-defined Alzheimer’s disease subtypes. The information could be used to assist physicians with prognosis and for selection and monitoring in clinical trials.
