Principal Investigator  
Principal Investigator's Name: Caroline Bouter
Institution: UMG Goettingen
Department: Nuclear Medicine
Proposed Analysis: To whom it may concern, I am a nuclear medicine specialist from the University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany. My research interest is focused on PET-imaging in dementia. Therefore, I would like to work with your database mainly using Amyloid- and FDG-PET data. I would like to analyze FDG-PETs from dementia patients that were scanned in our institution including quantification and compare our data to your dementia collective. We would like to use a machine-based learning approach in order to automatically identify FDG-PET patterns in different forms of dementia using an automated scoring system in order to improve the differentiation between different forms of dementia. Furthermore, we would like to compare our cohort of Lewy body dementia patients with AD patients from your database. We want to use a quantitative approach using cingulate cortex ratios in order to improve the diagnostic value of FDG-PET in the diagnosis of Lewy body dementia. Please do not hesitate to contact me for further details, if needed. Best, Caroline Bouter.
