Serial F-18-FDG PET/CT distinguishes inflamed from stable plaque phenotypes in shear-stress induced murine atherosclerosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Detection of inflamed atherosclerotic plaques is of crucial importance. The carotid artery cuff-model in ApoE(-/-) mice results in shear-stress induced atherosclerosis with inflamed plaques upstream (US) and 'stable' plaques downstream (DS) of the cuff. We evaluated the potential of F-18-FDG PET/CT to differentiate these plaque phenotypes… (More)
