The objectives of the COST Action MB1103 ASL in Dementia(AID) are:
- To harmonise and compare all existing ASL acquisition methods
- To develop automatic image processing software to offer the best possible precision and reproducibility when comparing quantitative perfusion parameters
- To establish clinical trials to compare results obtained from ASL to FDG-PET across several European countries
- To validate the technology as a biomarker of disease onset and progression, and a possible trial outcome measure.
