Got a question regarding the various types of brain scans. Maybe the answer was implied in the article but flew by me. Here's my question (it's a triad but essentially the same question): What is considered a baseline for determining atrophy, lowered metabolic activity and amounts of amyloid? Are these baselines objectively established, i.e., based on scans of what we consider healthy brains, or are they established based on individual patient history? Is there any discussion anywhere about the efficacy of objective baselines versus personal baselines, considering that there probably isn't enough data on most people to establish a personal brain scan baseline of any type?
Are my questions making sense? Are they, indeed, the same question? (Grinning here...)
