Avid Radiopharmaceuticals is an American company, founded by Dr. Daniel Skovronsky, and based at the University City Science Center research campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The company has developed a radioactive tracer called 18F-AV-45 that can be used to detect Alzheimer's disease in patients with memory problems using positron emission tomography (PET) scans, making the company the first to develop a method that can directly detect the amyloid plaque in the brain that is the distinguishing characteristic of the disease. - Source: Wikipedia
