Correction of collimator-dependent differences in the heart-to-mediastinum ratio in 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine cardiac sympathetic imaging: Determination of conversion equations using point-source imaging

Background Septal penetration causes collimator-dependent differences in the heart-to-mediastinum (H/M) ratio in 123I-metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) cardiac imaging. We investigated generally applicable methods to correct such differences. Methods and Results Four hours after 123I-MIBG injection, 40 patients underwent anterior chest imaging successively with medium-energy (ME...
