PMID:  77949     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Accumulation of autologous platelets labelled with indium-111 at sites of atherosclerosis or venous thrombosis was demonstrated by scintigraphy in three patients. The lesions detected were bilateral ulcerated carotid-artery plaques, iliofemoral venous thrombosis, and renal-vein thrombosis. This technique shows promose as a non-invasive means of diagnosing focal atherosclerotic and thrombotic lesions.
