|Abstract:||A common quantitative output value for PET measures of β-amyloid (Aβ) binding across tracers and methods would allow better comparison of data across sites and application of universal diagnostic and prognostic values. A method has recently been developed that generates a unit of measurement called the centiloid. We applied this method to 2-[2-(18)F-fluoro-6-(methylamino)-3-pyridinyl]-1-benzofuran-5-ol ((18)F-NAV4694) and (11)C-Pittsburgh compound B ((11)C-PiB) Aβ images to derive the scaling factor required to express tracer binding in centiloids. Fifty-five participants, including 10 young controls (33 ± 7 y old), underwent both (11)C-PiB and (18)F-NAV4694 imaging no more than 3 mo apart, with the images acquired 50-70 min after tracer injection. The images were spatially normalized and analyzed using the standard centiloid method and regions (cortex and whole-cerebellum reference) downloaded from the Global Alzheimer Association Interactive Network website. SUV ratios (SUVRs) showed a strong correlation in tracer binding ((18)F-NAV4694 SUVR = 1.09 × (11)C-PiB SUVR - 0.08, R(2) = 0.99). The equation to convert (18)F-NAV4694 to centiloids [100 × ((18)F-NAV4694 SUVR - 1.028)/1.174] was similar to a published equation for (11)C-PiB [100 × ((11)C-PiB SUVR - 1.009)/1.067]. In the young controls, the variance ratio ((18)F-NAV4694 centiloid SD divided by (11)C-PiB centiloid SD) was 0.85. The results for both (11)C-PiB and (18)F-NAV4694 can now be expressed in centiloids, an important step that should allow better clinical and research use of Aβ imaging. The standard centiloid method also showed that (18)F-NAV4694 has slightly higher Aβ binding and lower variance than (11)C-PiB, important properties for detecting early Aβ deposition and change over time.|
