PET shows promise in detecting tau protein accumulation in the brain, according to a study in the journal Neuron. Researchers developed a chemical that binds with the substance and used PET to identify areas of the brain at risk of neuronal death. The approach was evaluated in mice and humans with suspected Alzheimer's disease and could offer a route to early diagnosis.
