Amyloid PET Scans

Amyloid PET Scans

I am writing to invite you to join us for an informative dinner symposium about Alzheimer’s disease assessment using amyloid PET imaging. It will be held on Tuesday, July 19th, with a reception from 6:00-6:20 pm, followed by formal lectures from 6:20-8:30 p.m. at the Mission Bay Conference Center. (Please see event details, along with a registration link by visiting our Events landing page, or clicking here.)

The evening event entitled “Learn More about Amyloid PET Imaging and Dementia: What You Need to Know for Your Medicare Patients with Memory Complaints,” is generously sponsored by SNMMI (Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.)

I am pleased that the dinner event features presentations by UCSF scientists and physicians Miguel Hernandez Pampaloni, MD, PhD; Gil Rabinovici, MD, UCSF neurologist and chair of the IDEAS-Study; and Michael Weiner, MD. These leading authorities in the field will provide insights in advances in amyloid PET and its use in scanning for dementia.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: (1) Explain the mechanism of how amyloid PET works; (2) identify the appropriate indications and limitations of amyloid PET; and (3) understand how to provide Medicare patients access to amyloid PET.

Please feel free to let us know if you are able to attend or would otherwise like to remain in contact with us regarding our work in this arena. We welcome learning more about your interest.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and to hopefully seeing you on Tuesday, July 19.
