European Association of Nuclear Medicine and European Academy of Neurology recommendations for the use of brain 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in neurodegenerative cognitive impairment and dementia: Delphi consensus
Despite its large use, recommendations for the use of brain F-18 FDG-PET in clinical practice were still lacking. The European Academy of Neurology (EAN) and the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM) promoted a concerted action with 7 specialists from the two Societies and a group of facilitators in order to make the point on this issue. Extensive literature review and analysis of available data led, together with expert opinion (Delphi consensus), to deliver these recommendations that cover practically all the main brain neurodegenerative conditions causing cognitive impairment.
