The in vivo evaluation of the stage of organization of venous thrombosis could help guiding medical treatment and intervention. In this work we show that the use of EP-2104R, a fibrin specific contrast agent, provides valuable information on the stage of thrombus organization and allows identification of thrombus suitable for lysis.
