World Alzheimer’s Day is a global effort to raise awareness and challenge the stigma around Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia. Do you know the differences between Alzheimer’s and dementia?
Dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life. Alzheimer’s is one of several potential reasons for this decline, among them Frontotemporal Dementia, Huntington’s Disease, Parkinsons’s, or Vascular Dementia. Functional brain imaging is a cornerstone for the differentiation between all these different types of dementia and can support patient management as well as the research for potential therapies.
Perfusion imaging with Arterial Spin Labeling MRI has the potential to differentiate between Alzheimer’s and FTD but lacks standardization. In the ASPIRE project we develop an easy-to-use ASL evaluation tool that helps physicians to compare the brain perfusion pattern of a patient to a healthy control group.

Have you ever thought about assessing cerebral perfusion non-invasively in your next clinical trial? If so, this recently published review paper will address the most important questions such as how to equalize data acquisition across sites, how to perform QC and process the data.
