Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. This disease involves loss of brain function and affects memory, thinking and behavior. Forgetfulness is the first sign of this disease but most people don't take this symptom seriously. They think that being forgetful is a natural occurrence especially to older people. This leads to late detection of the disease, being only diagnosed when the Alzheimer's has greatly progressed. Most doctors nowadays use Alzheimer PET scan as an effective diagnostic tool.
During neurological tests, imaging procedures such as a PET scan are used by doctors to establish a confirmation in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease. With the use of the Alzheimer PET scan, the brain movements will be evaluated along with the overall sensory functions and coordination. The doctor will diagnose the disease the disease by conducting physical exam, asking questions about the medical history and a mental status examination.
