Preliminary study in patients with vertigo and dizziness using iodine 123 imp


, : Preliminary study in patients with vertigo and dizziness using iodine 123 imp. Kaku Igaku 26(1): 61-67

To study the application of cerebral blood flow scintigraphy with 123I-IMP for the evaluation of central dizziness, the difference in 123I-IMP accumulation between the right and left cerebellar hemispheres was determined as an asymmetry index (A.I.) in 8 normal subjects and compared with A.I. from patients with central dizziness. According to estimated lesions, 123I-IMP findings were compared with CT findings. The normal subjects had A.I. of 5.8 .+-. 2.1%, whereas 36 patients with central dizziness had A.I. of 12.7 .+-. 7.5%. On the basis of an A.I. of 8% or more as an abnormal finding on IMP scintigraphy, 11 of the 14 patients with estiamted lesions of cerebellar hemispheres and 16 of the 20 with those of the whole cerebellum including the vermis were evaluated to have had abnormalilites. Seven of 11 with estimated lesions of the brainstem and 4 of 5 with vertebrobasilar arterial insufficiency were evaluated to have had abnormalities. The findings of 123I-IMP cerebral blood flow scintigraphy were in good agreement with clinical symptoms in patients with central dizziness with estimated lesions of the cerebellar hemispheres, suggesting the possibility that this method is more useful than CT.
