Explore research articles, appropriate use criteria (AUC), procedure standards, and continuing education for amyloid/brain imaging, including recorded content from SNMMI meetings, webinars, and more.
Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) are statements containing indications describing when, and how often an intervention should be performed under the auspices of scientific evidence, clinical judgment, and patient values while avoiding unnecessary provisions of services.
Access brain imaging fact sheets, short (2–3 min) videos to answer specific how-to questions, case studies with relevant patient examples, and more.

Procedure standards help identify elements of the procedure that are most important in obtaining a high-quality examination, while simultaneously controlling costs. Use of procedure standards will increase the applicability of clinical research among multiple institutions, in turn, increasing the value of research studies, particularly in the field of technology assessment. In the interest of creating strong, comprehensive documents, some standards were formally adopted by SNMMI in collaboration with other professional organizations.
The New Imaging Dementia—Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (New IDEAS) Study is an
ongoing clinical trial that examines how amyloid PET scans can help
in the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
To meet the needs of the
study, investigators are particularly interested in enrolling patients
who are Black or African American and Hispanic or Latino.
The trial is currently recruiting both imaging centers and dementia sites. Sites that are interested in participating should take a 10-minute questionnaire to determine eligibility.

With the potential increased usage of amyloid imaging to qualify patients for anti-amyloid antibody therapy, SNMMI developed a product to give physicians practice in interpreting the three FDA-approved amyloid tracers. This library contains full DICOM cases including PET, CT and/or MR images. The workflow allows the learner to manipulate the images, and review the history, findings, and conclusions for the study.
