We applied the SWI technique in a rat stroke model to
quantitatively investigate cerebral angiogenesis after
stroke with Cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated
transcript (CART) treatment. Our data demonstrated that
SWI identifies cerebral angiogenesis in areas
surrounding the infarction, and CART treatment enhances
angiogenesis than that of the saline treated rats.
