18 F-FDG and 11C-PBR28 maximum intensity projections of the aorta. Anterior projections of aortal maximum intensity projection (MIP) images are shown from an IPPE control (A, B, E, F) in comparison to a APPE AAA animal (C, D, G, H). (A-D) display 18 F-FDG uptake, while (E-H) demonstrate 11C-PRB28 uptake at the aortic wall surface (scaled as SUV values; range 0 to 2). The AAA is clearly identified by both radiotracers on early and late phase images. Individual movie files of these data are provided [see Additional files 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8].
