At the Frontiers in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Conference (16 September 2019, London, UK), Neuro Central had the opportunity to discuss a recent study investigating flortaucipir PET as a diagnostic tool for tau protein accumulation. Lead author, Nikos Gorgoraptis (Imperial College London), explains the relevance of tau pathology and molecular imaging following TBI, as well as the limitations of current methods.
