José Luis Molinuevo discuss the biomarker results from the patient case stufy. Jonathan Schott, MD, then introduces imaging and fluid biomarkers that can inform the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. He evaluates the advantages and limitations of structural imaging in the context of Alzheimer’s disease and discusses the use of MRI and PET scans in the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. The biomarker results from the patient case study are then discussed. Lucilla Parnetti, MD, PhD, describes CSF biomarkers used to detect Alzheimer’s disease in the early stages and discusses the practical considerations relating to CSF biomarkers analysis. Jonathan Schott concludes by comparing CSF and amyloid PET imaging for the assessment of Alzheimer’s disease in the early stages.
