Abstract

Recent advances in brain imaging research are remarkable. Among them, many results from a variety of neuroimaging modalities in Alzheimer's dementia accompanied by the development and growing of imaging techniques have been presented in the research field. In this review we are focused on the imaging biomarkers for the Alzheimer's dementia to investigate the pathophysiologic mechanism. Future research on biomarkers for Alzheimer's dementia will provide more diverse and complex mechanisms or hypotheses than have been proposed in the current hypothesis about the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's dementia.
