Cardiomyocytes derived from human embryonic stem cells in pro-survival factors enhance function of infarcted rat hearts
Cardiomyocytes derived from human embryonic stem (hES) cells potentially offer large numbers of cells to facilitate repair of the infarcted heart. However, this approach has been limited byExpand
From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part I.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease results in >19 million deaths annually, and coronary heart disease accounts for the majority of this toll. Despite major advances in treatment of coronary heartExpand
Quantitative Evaluation of Carotid Plaque Composition by In Vivo MRI
Objective— This study evaluates the ability of MRI to quantify all major carotid atherosclerotic plaque components in vivo. Methods and Results— Thirty-one subjects scheduled for carotidExpand
Classification of Human Carotid Atherosclerotic Lesions With In Vivo Multicontrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Background—Recent studies demonstrated that in vivo and ex vivo MRI can characterize the components of the carotid atherosclerotic plaque, such as fibrous tissue, lipid/necrotic core, calcium,Expand
Cross-relaxation imaging reveals detailed anatomy of white matter fiber tracts in the human brain
TLDR
This study introduces a new time-efficient technique for cross-relaxation imaging, which obtains three-dimensional (3D) whole-brain k and f maps with scan time of <30 min and isotropic spatial resolution of 1.4 mm. Expand
In Vivo Quantitative Measurement of Intact Fibrous Cap and Lipid-Rich Necrotic Core Size in Atherosclerotic Carotid Plaque: Comparison of High-Resolution, Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Background— Previous studies with contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (CEMRI) have shown that the fibrous cap (FC) in atherosclerotic carotid plaques enhances with gadolinium-based contrastExpand
Hemorrhage in the Atherosclerotic Carotid Plaque: A High-Resolution MRI Study
Background and Purpose— High-resolution, multicontrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has developed into an effective tool for the identification of carotid atherosclerotic plaque components, suchExpand
The vulnerable, or high-risk, atherosclerotic plaque: noninvasive MR imaging for characterization and assessment.
"Vulnerable" plaques are atherosclerotic plaques that have a high likelihood to cause thrombotic complications, such as myocardial infarction or stroke. Plaques that tend to progress rapidly are alsoExpand
From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part II.
Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease results in >19 million deaths annually, and coronary heart disease accounts for the majority of this toll. Despite major advances in treatment of coronary heartExpand
Presence of Intraplaque Hemorrhage Stimulates Progression of Carotid Atherosclerotic Plaques: A High-Resolution Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
Background—Previous studies suggest that erythrocyte membranes from intraplaque hemorrhage into the necrotic core are a source of free cholesterol and may become a driving force in the progression ofExpand
