Scan of two brains.

The illuminated spots (red, yellow and green) indicate an accumulation of the protein beta-amyloid. The top row shows the brain of a patient diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. Bottom row shows brain of a healthy person. There is always a certain amount of nonspecific binding of the color marker, hence the bright spots of the healthy person. Photo: Swedish Biofinder Study
