Apoptosis consists of a complex set of biochemical events initiated by an array of different stimuli and enzymatic pathways. There is a set of common morphologic and biochemical features of apoptosis that could be exploited as hot or cold targets to image cardiovascular apoptosis. First, the authors review the potential array of targets that can be used to identify apoptosis. Then, the authors examine the history and current status of radiolabeled annexin V, the agent currently used to image apoptosis.
