Searching for a biomarker for cortical changes in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia

Takeaway

  • Cortical mean diffusivity is a promising biomarker for detection of cortical changes in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD).

Why this matters

  • BvFTD is a variant of dementia marked by progressive personality changes.

    • Misdiagnosis of the disease is common and necessitates the development of new biomarkers.
