Week in Review: PET of Alzheimer's | News from ISCT | Osteoporosis webinar

Dear AuntMinnie Member,

It's no secret that the recently approved drug aducanumab (Aduhelm) has fallen short of expectations as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease. But are there other drugs in development that might perform better?

One such drug is donanemab, which is being developed to attack Alzheimer's disease by clearing amyloid plaque deposits in the brain that are linked to the condition. In a recent study, researchers from donanemab's developer, Eli Lilly, published results that used PET scans to demonstrate the drug candidate's ability to clear plaque from the brain.

News from ISCT

In other news, the International Society for Computed Tomography (ISCT) convened its 22nd annual symposium on Thursday, and Editor Kate Madden Yee is on the scene in San Diego reporting on the proceedings. It's the first time since 2019 that this important symposium on CT has been held.

The meeting got off to a fast start with a discussion of one of the hottest new technologies in medical imaging, photon-counting CT. The technology has stirred excitement since the first commercial system was cleared for marketing in September 2021, and it offers the promise of higher-resolution images at a lower radiation dose, according to two Thursday presentations at ISCT 2022.

Another presentation pondered the potential role of CT in population management. For example, low-dose CT combined with artificial intelligence could detect additional pathologies in a form of opportunistic screening.
