A 3-dimensional magnetic resonance image form a patient who has undergone an acute myocardial infarction. The heart is visible in the center of the image. Healthy (non-infarcted) cardiac muscle is indicated by asterisks, whereas arrows point to the infarcted region. MRI can reveal the extent of the area affected by inflammation after a heart attack (the yellow infarcted region marked by arrows).

Photo 1: The authors are holding in their hands illustrations of cells expressing different combinations of membrane and nuclei fluorescent proteins. This corresponds to the method we developed (present in the article) to differentially label cells expressing different genes (with the codes A to F). Each cell expresses a different combination of 2 genes from a pool of 6 different genes (A, B, C, D, E, and F).

3D ultrasound of the right carotid artery. An atherosclerotic plaque is visible as a small protrusion (arrow) in the vessel wall of the internal branch of the proximal carotid artery (bottom), close to the bifurcation. In contrast, the surface of the disease-free external branch (top) is smooth (asterisk).
