The International Dementia Conference Series, hosted by the McGill Centre for Studies in Aging resumed its biweekly events beginning September 15, 2021, with the Prion Hypothesis and Protein Aggregate Series.
Please join us on November 24, 2021, for a presentation by Matthias Brendel, MD, entitled "Detection and quantification of Amyloids using PET in transgenic animal models."
Meeting ID: 886 8422 8585
Detection and quantification of Amyloids using PET in transgenic animal models
The talk will cover technical considerations of small animal PET imaging, including limited resolution of small animal PET imaging systems, high throughput imaging with multi mouse holders, partial volume effects and quantification strategies. Furthermore, successful studies and recent advances in beta-amyloid small animal PET imaging will be highlighted and usefulness of PET in basic science will be discussed. Finally, small animal tau PET imaging will be discussed.
