Ex vivo imaging and tracer uptake quantification in the atherosclerotic plaques. Autoradiography (AR) and corresponding Sudan-IV stained aortas excised from ApoE-KO non-blocked, blocked and control mice (a). Whole aorta and plaque surface areas were quantified using Image J software. Quantification of the autoradiography images expressed as intensity per unit area of whole aorta (whole aorta autoradiographic signal/whole aorta area, QL/mm2) (b). Quantification of the autoradiography images expressed as intensity per unit area of plaques ([whole aorta autoradiographic signal − normal aortic tissue autoradiographic signal]/plaque surface area, QL/mm2) (c)
