Dr William Jagust has been involved in the use of imaging to study aging and dementia since the early studies using PET to investigate glucose metabolism in patients with AD. His work has included FDG-PET, structural MRI, functional MRI, and most recently amyloid imaging with PET. His laboratory was the first to describe Alzheimer’s-related hippocampal atrophy quantified with MRI, and has continued to pioneer approaches using multimodal imaging to study aging and dementia.
