Functional PET Sequences

The type of radiopharmaceutical employed in a study determines what will be visualised by the PET scanner. Through our research partners, Macquarie MindScan routinely images glucose metabolism, amyloid plaques, tau protein, amino acid metabolism and vesicle monoamine transporters (VMAT; a dopamine marker).

PET investigations conducted at Macquarie Medical Imaging include:

Glucose metabolism

Amyloid plaques

Tau protein

Amino acid metabolism

Dopamine marker (VMAT)
