In this webinar, Dr. Roger Gunn presents a domain knowledge based AI algorithm that can quantify the level of amyloid plaques in the human brain using an image based regression of two canonical images that capture non-specific and specific binding of PET amyloid tracers.
The algorithm produces a parameter, amyloid load, that shows increased power over SUVr based methods and its application to automating radiological reads, cross-sectional and longitudinal analysis are presented. Results are presented for the three commonly available amyloid tracers- florbetapir, florbetaben and flutametamol.
