From: Bone marrow cell homing to sites of acute tibial fracture: 89Zr-oxine cell labeling with positron emission tomographic imaging in a mouse model

Soft-tissue injury does not attract the BM cells. a A soft-tissue injury in the distal lower leg overlying the distal tibia was created and 89Zr-labeled BM cells (2 × 107 cells at 9.65–21.3 kBq/106 cells) were transferred intravenously. MicroPET/CT images were acquired on days 0, 1, 2, and 5 (n = 4). b Soft-tissue incision without bone fracture did not recruit BM cells to the injury site. The arrow indicates the timing of soft-tissue injury generation
