Azelnidipine, a long-acting calcium channel blocker, is highly lipid soluble and selective for the vascular wall, and is expected to have an increasing effect on cerebral blood flow (CBF). The aim of this study is to investigate its safety and efficacy in stroke patients in the chronic stage as far as CBF is concerned using N-isopropyl-p-(123)I-iodo(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the value of combining (123)I-IMP brain perfusion SPECT and (123)I-MIBG myocardial scintigraphy for the discrimination of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) from other types of dementia. METHODS We subjected 252 consecutive patients with clinically suspected DLB to both (123)I-IMP brain perfusion SPECT and (123)I-MIBG myocardial(More)
