BACKGROUND Atherosclerosis is considered to be an inflammatory disease associated with the activation of hematopoietic and immune-related organs such as the bone marrow (BM) and spleen. We evaluated the metabolic activity of those organs and of the carotid artery with (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography in patients with coronary artery disease, including acute myocardial infarction. METHODS AND RESULTS Whole-body combined (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography… CONTINUE READING
