MicroSPECT-CT of Peripheral Angiogenesis
Hybrid microSPECT-CT images of peripheral angiogenesis in murine model of hindlimb ischemia. MicroCT images of bone structures and skin were registered with microSPECT images of Technetium-99m-labeled probe targeted at alpha-v beta-3 integrin expressed on proliferating endothelial cells to better demonstrate localization of the radiotracer within ischemic hindlimb (marked by yellow arrows).
