UNLABELLED Conventional cardiovascular imaging is invaluable for the assessment of late sequelae of atherosclerosis, such as diminished perfusion reserve and luminal stenosis. Molecular imaging provides complementary information about plaque composition and ongoing biologic processes in the vessel wall, allowing the early diagnosis and risk stratification of patients. Detection of enhanced glucose uptake, using (18)F-FDG PET, has been proposed as a noninvasive approach to track macrophage… CONTINUE READING
