Dementia: Cancer scanner ‘could help early diagnoses’

22 February 2020 – BBC News

Doctors at University Hospital of Wales (UHW) in Cardiff have said that its PET scanner could show signs of dementia in people who are not currently showing symptoms.

Roughly 47% of people in Wales living with dementia do not have a diagnosis.

The Welsh Government is investing £10m a year in its dementia action plan.

A pilot has been taking place across the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) over the past few months for patients who are suspected of having dementia.
