Quantitative 17-segmental analysis. Quantitative 17-segmental analysis of the late 123I-mIBG uptake (left) and washout (right) of the left ventricle before (A) and after (B) PVI. Values are expressed as mean regional uptake in comparison to the regional maximum uptake and segmental washout (%). Significantly reduced uptake and increased regional washout after PVI (mean values after PVI compared with mean values before PVI) in the basal inferior and basal lateral segments (C).
