Objective: To assess whether Alzheimer disease (AD) clinical presentation and relate to the burden and topography of β-amyloid (Aβ) and tau pathologies using in vivo PET imaging.
Methods: We studied 119 Aβ-positive symptomatic patients aged 48-95 years, including 29 patients with logopenic variant primary progressive aphasia (lvPPA) and 21 with posterior cortical atrophy (PCA). Pittsburgh compound B (PiB)-Aβ and flortaucipir (tau)-PET standardized uptake value ratio (SUVR) images were created. Read More
