Australia faces the challenge of an ageing population. The incidence of people with dementia unable to live in the community is expected to rise leading to demands on care facilities to provide specialised care.

CONCLUSIONS: This study did not support an association between statin use and diagnostic conversion but suggested a possible association between statin use and cognitive change in EMCI. Additional randomized clinical trials of statins may be warranted in the prodromal EMCI stage of AD. PMID: 31806426 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Purpose Based on the possibility that early-phase florbetaben (E-FBB) brain PET can be a surrogate for brain perfusion imaging, we conducted this study to investigate the clinical utility of E-FBB PET instead of 18F-FDG brain PET. Materials and Methods This prospective study included 35 patients with clinical suspicion of cognitive decline or dementia and 5 healthy controls. Brain MRI, E-FBB PET, late-phase FBB PET, and FDG PET were acquired. The regional SUV ratios (SUVRs) were calculated by cortical surface region of interest analysis using individual MRI, and relationship between E-FBB and FDG PET was analyzed. All...

EARLY PREDICTION OF ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE DEMENTIA BASED ON BASELINE HIPPOCAMPAL MRI AND 1-YEAR FOLLOW-UP COGNITIVE MEASURES USING DEEP RECURRENT NEURAL NETWORKS. Proc IEEE Int Symp Biomed Imaging. 2019 Apr;2019:368-371 Authors: Li H, Fan Y, Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative Abstract Multi-modal biological, imaging, and neuropsychological markers have demonstrated promising performance for distinguishing Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients from cognitively normal elders. However, it remains difficult to early predict when and which mild cognitive impairment (MCI) individuals will convert to...
