Whole Body MIBG is a nuclear scan that is done to locate or confirm the presence of neuroectodermally derived tumors, including pheochromocytoma and neuroblastoma. The scan is alternatively known as adrenal medullary imaging.
It is done in two visits:
On the first visit a small injection of a radioactive isotope (MIBG, iodine-131-meta-iodobenzylguanidine) is injected into a vein. On second visit on the same day or the next day a series of images are taken. The patient is asked to lay down on a table under the scanner. Imaging may take 1 - 2 hours.
Lugol's iodine solution is given before the test as well as after administration of the radioisotope to block uptake into the thyroid.
Indications of Whole Body MIBG Scan
- Most often, the test is used to locate pheochromocytoma and neuroblastoma.
- Additional conditions under which the test may be performed include multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) II, ganglioneuroma, ganglioneuroblastoma, paraganglioma and carcinoid tumor.
- MIBG labeled to radio-iodine may be useful in the evaluation of cardiac toxicity from chemotherapy.
This test should not be performed on pregnant women because of the danger to the fetus from radiation and lactating mothers are asked to discontinue breastfeeding temporarily.
