Novel In Vivo Synaptic Imaging in Behavioral Variant FTD (bvFTD)

Yale University School of Medicine and Yale New Haven Hospital are conducting a neuroimaging study. This study will help researchers better understand bvFTD and may lead to a new biomarker that could help detect and diagnose bvFTD earlier.

WHO: People with bvFTD, ages 40-85.

WHAT: Participation involves one phone screening and at least 3 in-person visits. Study procedures will include: A screening appointment, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning session, and up to three Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanning sessions.

WHEN: Flexible with your schedule, but most weekdays for visits. Phone screenings can occur any weekday.

WHERE: Yale University PET Center (801 Howard Avenue, New Haven) for screening and PET scan. Anlyan Center (300 Cedar Street, New Haven) for MRI. Transportation arrangements can be made on a case-by-case basis.
