99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 Imaging for Carotid Atherosclerosis


Brief description of study

The study is being done to assess the ability of the radiotracer 99mTc-rhAnnexin V-128 to image atherosclerotic plaque that may rupture and break off artery walls. This is caused by apoptosis or cell death in the plaque. These ruptured plaques can block blood circulation in the arteries causing a lack of oxygen to the tissues. Atherosclerotic plaques can build up on any artery in the body.
