I would like to mention the place of MIBG as other modality of
Cardiac Imaging for risk stratification of patients with heart failure in
need for ICD; see Bax et al, Cardiac Sympathetic Denervation Assessed
With 123-Iodine Metaiodobenzylguanidine Imaging Predicts Ventricular
Arrhythmias in Implantable Cardioverter-Defibrillator Patients

The Conclusions of which was that Cardiac sympathetic denervation
predicts ventricular arrhythmias causing appropriate ICD therapy as well
as the composite of appropriate ICD therapy or cardiac death.
