The recovery course of cardiac (131)I-MIBG uptake after reperfusion following transient ischemia is quite different from that of (125)I-ICYP. Simultaneous scintigraphic portrayal of beta-adrenoceptors together with (131)I-MIBG would provide useful information regarding adrenergic system signaling in patients with coronary artery disease.
