C80 - Present and Future Biomarkers in Dementia: A Case-based Approach

Event Time: Monday April 23, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): Jonathan Graff-Radford MD
Description: Biomarkers are currently used clinically, for diagnostic criteria, in therapeutic trials, and for research in dementias. Biomarkers have become increasingly important to understanding the pathophysiology across dementias. Through presentations of common and more challenging dementia cases, faculty will facilitate a discussion with the audience of differential diagnosis of dementia with the aid of biomarkers. This program complements C68: Cognitive Impairment Due to Alzheimer's Disease: Using Old Skills and New Tools for Diagnosis and Treatment and C91: Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy: Update, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should become familiar with biomarkers currently available for the differential diagnoses and work-up dementias, and be updated on breakthroughs in the field.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
