New tracer enhances myocardial innervation imaging

ASNC SmartBrief | Jul 21, 2014

Cardiac PET imaging using the F-18 LMI1195 radiotracer was safe and effective in imaging abnormalities of the cardiac sympathetic nervous system, caused by increase in norepinephrine release and decrease in cardiac norepinephrine reuptake, according to a 12-patient study. The new PET tracer "demonstrates no safety concerns, rapid blood clearance, and extraction by the heart with stable myocardial activity over five hours and a favorable biodistribution for cardiac imaging over the same period of time," wrote Albert Sinusas and colleagues.
