Researchers from Arizona have developed a florbetapir-PET brain imaging technique to better detect the progression of beta-amyloid plaque deposition, which has been linked with Alzheimer's disease.

The findings, published online March 5 in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine, could also help scientists assess antiamyloid treatments being used in clinical trials.
