Iodine-123-MIBG (123I-MIBG) scintigraphy were performed for 23 patients with neuroblastoma at diagnosis. The intensity of MIBG activity in the primary tumor was evaluated visually (grade 3; intense uptake-grade 0; no definite uptake), and its relationship to the size, degree of tumor spread, urinary catecholamine metabolites (VMA, HVA), and histological… CONTINUE READING
