OBJECTIVES: Technetium-99m sestamibi ((99m)Tc-MIBI) scintigraphy has been reported to be a functional imaging tool for in vivo detection of mitochondrial dysfunction in myocardium and multidrug resistance-associated protein expression in tumors. The purpose of this study was to propose a clinically applicable pharmacokinetic model with metabolic equilibrium of (99m)Tc-MIBI and to evaluate the accuracy of the model. METHODS: For this study, eight healthy men received (99m)Tc-MIBI scintigraphy. The planar images were obtained at 0.25, 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 h after (99m)Tc-MIBI injection. The measured time series (99m)Tc-MIBI counts were fitted to our model by nonlinear regression analysis. The predictive performance of the model was determined by comparing the residuals between measured and predicted values. RESULTS: We obtained a good regression by fitting data from 0.25 to 6 h after (99m)Tc-MIBI injection, with excellent correlation between measured and predicted (99m)Tc-MIBI counts (R (2) = 0.9792) and a slope near unity. The 95 % confidence interval of the mean prediction error included 0, which means that the prediction was not significantly biased. The precision of the prediction was also excellent. CONCLUSIONS: Our model shows good predictive capacity, with favorable bias and accuracy. By comparing the predictive values of this model with measured values, mitochondrial (99m)Tc-MIBI washout can be quantified. (99m)Tc-MIBI washout rates are reported to be a promising method for evaluating cardiac function in patients with cardiac diseases and P-glycoprotein expression in tumor cells. Therefore, this quantification could be useful for mitochondrial functional imaging, especially in patients with cardiac diseases or tumors.
