New IDEAS is a nationwide research study for people who have memory loss. The study is looking at a type of FDA-approved brain imaging called an amyloid PET scan. It is a safe, non-invasive test that takes pictures of your brain.
New IDEAS is trying to find out if your PET scan results help guide your doctor in diagnosing and treating your memory condition. We want to see if this leads to better health for you.
Your memory care doctor will be able to tell you if you can participate. You may be able to join the New IDEAS Study if you or a loved one:
1 visit with your memory care doctor before the scan.
1 amyloid PET scan visit.
1 visit with your memory care doctor after the scan.
You will receive $75 if you participate in the optional study blood draw.
Medicare will cover the primary cost of your amyloid PET scan. Any co-pay costs for the PET scan will be covered by the study.
