Myocardial m-[123I]iodobenzylguanidine scintigraphy for the assessment of adrenergic cardiac innervation in patients with IDDM. Comparison with cardiovascular reflex tests and relationship to left ventricular function.


Cardiac imaging using m-[123I]iodobenzylguanidine (mIBG) reflects sympathetic myocardial innervation. In patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), the following were studied: 1) the prevalence of derangements of cardiac autonomic innervation as detected by mIBG scintigraphy in comparison with cardiovascular reflex tests and 2) the… (More)
