Multimodality imaging tracks cardiac stem cell therapies

May 5, 2009 Diagnostic Imaging. Multimodality imaging tracks cardiac stem cell therapies By H.A. Abella PET, SPECT, MRI, and even x-ray-based modalities are helping researchers learn how to use stem cells to restore the pumping power of injured hearts. The modalities factor into plans to track stem cell delivery, survival, and replication during clinical use, making them essential for research. Labeling studies follow human stem cell therapies. That was the take-home message delivered by Dr. Joseph Wu, an assistant professor of medicine and radiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, at the 2009 SNM Symposium on Multimodality Cardiovascular Molecular Imaging in Bethesda, MD.
