Abstract: 

Introduction: TC-MIBI is a radiopharmaceutical which trend to accumulate in heart, but also has noticeable absorption in lung. Absorption in lung may change heart absorption and so affect heart imaging. We aimed to assess effect of 2100MHz cell phone waves on lung accumulation of TC-MIBI.
Methods: Male wistar rats were included in this study. After IV injection of TC-MIBI, rats were housed in standard cages which were exposed with 2100MHZ waves in time of 15, 30 minutes. In control groups, standby phones were used. Drug activity in lung was assessed using a dose- calibrator, and weight was assessed using a digital scale. Also serum concentration of malondialdehyde and activity of catalase were measured using ELISA.
Results: After 15 and 30 minutes of exposure with 2100 MHz waves, experiments have a significant increase in lung absorption of TC-MIBI. Our results also showed a significant time dependent decreasing of lung activity. Oxidative stress has not any significant changes.
Conclusion: While performing myocardial perfusion imaging by radiopharmaceutical injection of 99mTC-MIBI, if the patient use cell phone at the coverage of 2100MHz network during the preparation and imaging process, increased absorption of radiopharmaceutical by the lung may affect the amount of heart uptake that causes artifacts in imaging and may also affect to correct diagnosis by the physician.
