Clinical Trial

Imaging of LAA Thrombosis

Study Description

Imaging of LAA Thrombosis

The purpose of the study is to evaluate a new radiotracer called 64Cu-FBP8 for PET-MR imaging of thrombosis. The tracer has the potential of detecting thrombosis in the left atrial appendage of patients with atrial fibrillation, thereby may provide a non-invasive alternative to the current standard-of-care, transesophageal echocardiography.
