The Potential Role of Iodine-123 Metaiodobenzylguanidine Imaging for Identifying Sustained Ventricular Tachycardia in Patients with Cardiomyopathy

Abstract

Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) significantly reduce mortality in patients with depressed left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and heart failure (HF). However, shortcomings of LVEF to accurately identify those at greatest risk of ventricular tachyarrhythmias have led to the pursuit of alternative means to refine qualification criteria… (More)
