The aim of this study was to test the feasibility of cine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for assessment of the infarcted rat and mouse heart and to compare the results with established methods. These models have been proven to predict genesis and prevention of heart failure in patients. The value of cine MRI was tested in studies investigating(More)
Cell-based therapy after myocardial infarction (MI) is a promising therapeutic option but the relevant cell subsets and dosage requirements are poorly defined. We hypothesized that cell therapy for myocardial infarction is improved by ex vivo expansion and high-dose transplantation of defined hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs). Since beta-catenin(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the relative usefulness and suitability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in daily clinical practice as compared to various technologies of computed tomography (CT) in addressing questions of orthodontic interest. METHODS Three blinded raters evaluated 2D slices and 3D reconstructions created from scans of two pig heads. Five(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical procedures in small animal models of heart disease might evoke alterations in cardiac morphology and function. The aim of this study was to reveal and quantify such potential artificial early or long term effects in vivo, which might account for a significant bias in basic cardiovascular research, and, therefore, could potentially(More)
