Title:
A new 18F-labeled myocardial PET tracer: myocardial uptake after permanent and transient coronary occlusion in rats. 
Abstract:
Conventional myocardial perfusion PET tracers require onsite tracer production because of their short radioactive half-lives. To investigate the potential of a new (18)F-labeled pyridazinone analog ((18)F-BMS-747158-02), we characterized this tracer in a rat model of permanent and transient coronary occlusion using small-animal PET. METHODS: Myocardial (18)F-BMS-747158-02 distribution in healthy rats (n = 7), rats with transient (3-min) left coronary artery occlusion (n = 11), and rats with perm...    »
