Abstract

Purpose of Review: Autonomic innervation is crucial for regulating cardiac function. Sympathetic innervation imaging with 123I-mIBG and analogous PET tracers assesses disease in ways that differ from customary methods. This review describes practical use in various clinical scenarios, discusses recent guidelines, presents new data confirming risk stratification power, describes an ongoing prospective study, and looks forward to wider use in patient management. Recent Findings: ASNC 123I-mIBG guidelines are available, expanding on European guidelines. ADMIRE-HF patient follow-up increased to 2 years in ADMIRE HFX, demonstrating independent mortality risk reclassification. ADMIRE-HF findings were substantiated in a Japanese consortium study and in the PAREPET 11C-HED PET study. Exciting potential uses of adrenergic imaging are management of LVADs and VT ablation. CZT cameras provide advantages, but derived parameters differ from Anger camera values. Summary: Independent risk stratification utility of adrenergic imaging with 123I-mIBG and PET tracers is continuously being confirmed. An ongoing prospective randomized study promises to establish patient management utility. There is potential for wider use and improved images with newer cameras and PET.
