Cardiac regeneration based on transplantation of stem cell derivates is a rapidly developing area of research with high potential for clinical applications. We have shown that transplantation of human embryonic stem cell derived cardiomyocytes after myocardial infarction in small and large animals leads to remuscularization and concomitant ingrowths of neovasculature. Non-invasive detection of transplanted cells in damaged organs and longitudinal follow up of cell fate and graft size is important for evaluation of cell therapies. This talk will discuss state-of-the-art methods of transplanted cell labeling and visualization using non-invasive imaging. Advantages and disadvantages of direct and indirect (genetic) cell labeling methods will be discussed with the underlying theory and specific applications.
