We know that early and accurate diagnosis leads to better outcomes and higher quality of life for people with Alzheimer's and their families. Yet, the federal government has said there is insufficient evidence that a diagnostic test called 'brain amyloid imaging' improves health outcomes.
Thankfully the decision is not yet final. Make your voice heard if you have had firsthand experience with dementia diagnosis and care, for yourself or a loved one. If you and your family experienced challenges in obtaining a diagnosis, or if an accurate diagnosis has allowed you and your family to better plan and manage the disease, please share your experience.
