Abstract

Detection of vulnerable plaques as the underlying cause of myocardial infarction is at the center of attention in cardiology. We have previously shown that infiltration of inflammatory cells in atherosclerotic plaques renders these plaques relatively hot and acidic, with substantial pla...read more
