[Detection of inflammation in an atherosclerose plaque: the role of the positron emission tomography and C reactive protein].

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To demonstrate that inflammatory atheromatose carotid plaques can be visualized with positron emission tomography with 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18FDG PET) in symptomatic patients, in order to correlate them with systemic inflammatory markers, such as CRP. METHOD Fifteen patients with cerebral ischemia due to atherosclerotic carotid disease were… (More)
