BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Lapses in memory and confused thinking could be normal signs of getting older, or they could suggest something more serious, such as Alzheimer's disease.

We are proud to be a site for the Imaging Dementia - Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (IDEAS) Study. This $100 million study will be the largest of its kind, eventually enrolling over 18,000 patients. The study was developed by the IDEAS study group, which included Gil Rabinovici, MD, of the UCSF Department of Neurology; Maria Carrillo, PhD, chief science officer of the Alzheimer's Association, and other partners. The IDEAS Study is led by the Alzheimer's Association and the American College of Radiology Imaging Network (ACRIN) and managed by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
