12/01/1996 - "The differences of biodistribution in viable myocardium and scars indicate that not only perfusion but also the metabolic state of the myocardium can be evaluated with radioiodinated PHIPA 3-10."
12/01/1996 - "In the preoperative scans, a mismatch of fatty acid uptake and perfusion ([123I]PHIPA 3-10 > flow) was observed which indicated residual viable myocardium, while a matched defect was associated with scar. "
12/01/1996 - "In viable myocardium, there was a significantly higher accumulation of [131I]PHIPA 3-10 compared to 99mTc-sestamibi (mean 5.9 x 10(-3) versus 2.7 x 10(-3)%ID/g),whereas in scars the uptake of both tracers was comparable (1.2 x 10(-3) versus 1.4 x 10(-3)%ID/g). "
