Targeted molecular imaging of vascular inflammation in cardiovascular disease using nano- and micro-sized agents

Abstract:

Molecular imaging is emerging as a key experimental tool for the identification of inflammatory cellular and molecular processes involved in the development of cardiovascular disease. This review summarises current molecular imaging approaches for the detection of vascular inflammation using a range of nano- and micro-sized contrast agents. We highlight strategies for detection of cell adhesion molecules, which are key regulators of endothelial activation and leukocyte recruitment in atheroge...
