The normal pattern of the myocardial sympathetic innervation was studied in 15 subjects using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) gamma scintigraphy with iodine 123-labeled meta-iodobenzylguanidine (I123MIBG). Seven young subjects (mean age 29.4 +/- 7.5 years SD) with supraventricular tachycardia and eight older patients (mean age 53.0 +/- 5.1 years SD) with normal coronary arteries at cardiac catheterization and normal thallium-201 scintigrams were studied. MIBG uptake in the… CONTINUE READING
