Imágenes de mapeado óptico de dos corazones distintos de ratones que desarrollaron fibrilación ventricular.
Representative results from participants showing atherosclerosis progression (left) and regression (disappearance of plaques, right) in arteries of the neck (carotids) and groin (femorals). Each image pair shows the results of the initial study at baseline and the follow-up study of the same artery 6 years later. The images show representative vascular ultrasound images on the right and 3-dimensional reconstructions on the left.

Atherosclerosis, previously believed to be an irreversible progressive disease, can be reversed if risk factors are contolled early enough

Neuregulin-1 induces changes in actin filaments during ventricular maturation. Actinin staining of a mouse embryo heart reveals a striated actin pattern corresponding to mature trabecular sarcomeres (green). The magnified view shows the differences in luminosity that distinguish the more organized actin filaments of the trabecular myocardium from the less organized compact layer
