Dr. Kent P. Friedman's Dementia Study Receives Attention on Web Publications

Assistant Professor and Division of Nuclear Medicine Section Chief at NYUMC Department of Radiology, Dr. Kent Friedman, and his collaborators have recently received extensive attention for their diagnostic-quality PET/MRI images. The group presented their preliminary data at this year’s annual Radiological Society of North American (RSNA) conference and showed that their PET/MRI brain images have comparable clinical interpretation to ones produced by PET/CT. Their study consisted of both PET/CT and PET/MRI scans of 19 patients with clinically suspected dementia. The high intrareader agreement of the PET data by two experienced nuclear medicine physicians, suggests that PET/MRI will be viable tool for dementia testing. Since the conference in early December, news of this study has been published on Aunt Minnie and the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI).
