Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium
Saturday, July 21, 2018
8 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
The Alzheimer's Imaging Consortium (AIC), a preconference to the Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC), will focus on the clinical application and methodological development of neuroimaging (MRI, PET, SPECT, CT and others) to Alzheimer's disease, other dementias and normal brain aging. The program consists of invited speakers, as well as oral and poster presentations from submitted abstracts.
The AIC is organized by the Neuroimaging Professional Interest Area of the International Society to Advance Alzheimer's Research and Treatment (ISTAART).
All clinicians involved in the care or research of individuals with memory or other cognitive complaints, including but not limited to neurologists, psychiatrists, radiologists, geriatricians, neuropsychologists, physicians and nurses; researchers, industry and regulatory agency stakeholders; and others involved in the use of imaging techniques in the study of Alzheimer’s disease, related disorders and normal aging.
AIC is a preconference to AAIC 2018. Preconferences require a separate registration fee in addition to AAIC full conference registration or it may be purchased as a stand-alone event. Registration will open in February.
A limited number of fellowships, in the form of complimentary AIC registration, are available for early career scientists who are the presenting author on an accepted abstract. Applications are accepted during the main abstract submission process.
