抄録: Background: Although the heart-to-mediastinum (H/M) ratio in a planar image has been used for practical quantification in 123I- metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) imaging, standardization of the parameter is not yet established. We hypothesized that the value of the H/M ratio could be standardized to the various camera-collimator combinations. Methods and results: Standard phantoms consisting of the heart and mediastinum were made. A low-energy high-resolution (LEHR) collimator and a medium-energy (ME) collimator were used. We examined multi-window correction methods with 123I- dual-window (IDW) acquisition, and planar images were obtained with IDW correction and the LEHR collimator. The images were obtained using the following gamma camera systems: GCA 9300A (Toshiba, Tokyo), E.CAM Signature (Toshiba/Siemens, Tokyo) and Varicam (GE, Tokyo). Cardiac phantom studies demonstrated that contamination of the H/M count ratio was greater with the LEHR collimator and least with the ME collimator. The corrected H/M ratio with the LEHR collimator was similar to that with ME collimators. The uncorrected H/M ratio with the ME collimator was linearly related to the H/M ratio with IDW correction with the LEHR collimator. The relationship between the uncorrected H/M ratios determined with the LEHR (E.CAM) and the ME collimators was y = 0.56x + 0.49, where y = H/M ratio with the E.CAM and x = H/M ratio with the ME collimator. The average normal values for the low-energy collimator (n=18) were 2.2±0.2 (initial H/M ratio) and 2.42±0.2 (delayed H/M ratio), and for the low/medium-energy (LME) collimator (n=14) were 2.63±0.25 (initial H/M ratio) and 2.87±0.19 (delayed H/M ratio). H/M ratios in previous clinical studies using LEHR collimators are comparable to those with ME collimators. Conclusion: The IDW-corrected H/M ratios determined with the LEHR collimator were similar to those determined with the ME collimator. This finding could make it possible to standardize the H/M ratio in planar imaging among various collimators in the clinical setting. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
