Association Between Osteogenesis and Inflammation During the Progression of Calcified Plaque Evaluated by 18F-Fluoride and 18F-FDG.


18F-FDG is the most widely validated PET tracer for the evaluation of atherosclerotic inflammation. Recently, 18F-NaF has also been considered a potential novel biomarker of osteogenesis in atherosclerosis. We aimed to analyze the association between inflammation and osteogenesis at different stages of atherosclerosis, as well as the interrelationship… (More)
