UNLABELLED Although various noninvasive methods have been used to detect vasospasm, none of them are sensitive enough for patients with sporadic attacks. Because abnormal fatty acid metabolism and cardiac adrenergic neuronal damage are observed in ischemic myocardium, (123)I-15-(p-iodophenyl)-3-R,S-methyl pentadecanoic acid (BMIPP) and (123)I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) have recently been proposed as useful tracers for detection of myocardial damage. This study investigated the relationships… CONTINUE READING
