The in vivo evaluation of the stage of organization or resolution of venous thrombosis could lead the medical treatment decision in venous thrombosis diseases. In this work we show that the use of EP-2104R, a fibrin specific contrast agent could give valuable information of the stage of thrombus resolution in an in vivo animal model.
