AAIC 2017 | Using neuroimaging to track inflammation in Alzheimer’s disease

Agneta Nordberg, MD, PhD from the Karolinska University Hospital Huddinge, Solna, Sweden discusses neuroimaging of inflammation at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) 2017, London, UK. Astrocytes have been linked to inflammation in the initial stages of Alzheimer’s disease and developments in neuroimaging can help to analyse the role of astrocytes and inflammation in disease progression.
