Functional neuroimaging and dementia revisited

Andreas Otte

Med Sci Monit 2003; 9(6): LE15-0

ID: 12906


Dear Editor,
With great interest I read the excellent review article from Renuka Visvanathan on positron emission tomography (PET) imaging in the different types of dementia [1]. In terms of Alzheimer’s disease we would like to add that at its inception functional neuroimaging typically exhibits a unilateral temporoparietal affection, whereas in advanced stages of the disease frontal lesions can occur in addition to bilateral temporoparietal lesions.
