I noticed that you ask about PET scans for amyloid plaques.  Is there something that I need to know.  I had one and all I know if that I have EOAD and I have more plaque than the doctors expected to find.

The plaque is probably the amyloid plaques, without which a diagnosis of AD cannot be made. Some dianosed without the glucose PET scan hav e had their diagnosis changed once they had it.  We need to know more about its effect on the progression of the disease. Those without it but otherwise meeting the criteria , know something is wrong with themselves.
