Autoradiograms of myocardial cross sections. 68Ga-NODAGA-RGD and 68Ga-TRAP(RGD)3 uptake at 1 week after MI, in sham-operated controls and with a pre-injection of blocking dose of cilengitide. From left to right: HE-stained 20-μm section, delineated infarct area (arrow, contour), digitised autoradiogram of the same section where focal uptake matches infarct area. Digitised autoradiogram of 20-μm sections of the spleen (positive control) and muscle (negative control), with the same colour scale.
