Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The Maximum Diagnostic Mass by assessing the visual read out of amyloid status according to and quantification of an [18F]AZD4694 PET image in a high mass experiment compared to the image in a low mass experiment in the same subject. [ Time Frame: Visit 3 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measuring the maximum chemical mass not causing any significant alteration of the amyloid status (unit = micrograms)

  • The Maximum Diagnostic Mass by assessing the visual read out of amyloid status according to and quantification of an [18F]AZD4694 PET image in a high mass experiment compared to the image in a low mass experiment in the same subject. [ Time Frame: Visit 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Measuring the maximum chemical mass not causing any significant alteration of the amyloid status (unit = micrograms)


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Adverse Events as a measure of Safety and tolerability of [18F]AZD4694 [ Time Frame: Range of Visits 3-5 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Correlation between early uptake of [18F]AZD4694 images and cerebral blood flow images as measured by Arterial Spin Labeling Magnetic resonance imaging [ Time Frame: Range of Screening Visit to Visit 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation between estimates of β-amyloid load in brain obtained using [18F]AZD4694 Position Emission Tomography imaging and concentrations of β-amyloid in Cerebrospinal fluid [ Time Frame: Range of Screening Visit to Visit 4 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Low mass dose below 5ug. High mass dose around 20 ug.
Experimental: Part 2
Healthy Volunteers
Other: [18Fluor]AZD4694
Low mass dose below 5ug. High mass dose will be the Maximum Detective Mass established in the previous panels.
