Prognostic value of iodine-123 labelled BMIPP fatty acid analogue imaging in patients with myocardial infarction


This study was undertaken to evaluate the prognostic value of iodine-123 labelled 15-iodophenyl3-R,S-methyl pentadecanoic acid (BMIPP) imaging in patients with myocardial infarction. BMIPP is an iodinated methyl branched fatty acid analogue which is trapped in the myocardium with little washout, thereby reflecting fatty acid utilization in the myocardium… (More)
