In vivo imaging of tau pathology will provide new insights into tau deposition in the human brain, thus facilitating research into causes, diagnosis and treatment of major dementias, such as Alzheimer’s disease, or some variants of frontotemporal lobar degeneration, in which tau plays a role. Tau imaging poses several challenges, some related to the singularities of tau aggregation, and others related to radiotracer design. Several groups around the world are working on the development of imaging agents that will allow the in vivo assessment of tau deposition in aging and in neurodegeneration. Development of a tau imaging tracer will enable researchers to noninvasively examine the degree and extent of tau pathology in the brain, quantify changes in tau deposition over time, evaluate its relation to cognition and assess the efficacy of anti-tau therapy.
