Title:
[Macrophage specific MRI imaging for antigen induced arthritides : A potential new strategy for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis.] 
Abstract:
PURPOSE: The present work describes the potential of iron oxides for the detection of macrophages in synovitis in experimental, antigen-induced arthritis.METHODS: The pivotal role of macrophages in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in humans and in antigen-induced arthritis (AIA) in animal models is discussed. The latter appear to be very similar in many aspects to the human RA. We show the potential for iron oxide-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to determine the macrophage content in the arth...    »
