Executive Summary

Brain scans of elderly patients with memory problems have helped researchers in the US to pick out those at risk of Alzheimer's disease. Using an imaging technique in which a radioactive tracer is injected and detected in the brain using a gamma camera, they have correctly predicted in 83% of cases which patients would go on to develop the disease within two or three years.
