Defining measures for monitoring familial frontotemporal lobar degeneration

Takeaway

  • Imaging can be used ahead of clinical measures to detect early brain abnormalities that signify the onset of familial frontotemporal lobar degeneration (f-FTLD), but these imaging changes vary across individuals.

Why this matters

    Early detection of f-FTLD is important to enable early treatment that might delay or prevent disease progression.
