IDEAS: Imaging Dementia-Evidence for Amyloid Scanning

Grants and Contracts Details


The Imaging Dementia—Evidence for Amyloid Scanning (IDEAS) Study will establish an openlabel, longitudinal cohort study to assess the impact of amyloid PET on patient outcomes. The study will be performed in accordance with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) policy of Coverage with Evidence Development (CED) in Medicare beneficiaries who meet the Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) for amyloid PET (Johnson et al. 2013). Our hypothesis is that amyloid PET will decrease uncertainty and increase confidence in the underlying cause of cognitive impairment, that this will translate into earlier counseling and interventions in these domains, and that these interventions will lead to improved outcomes.
