RBD may also be related to more severe autonomic dysfunction as evidenced from the study uptake of [sup.123]I-labeled meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) in myocardial scintigrams, showing that RBD is an independent factor associated with low uptake indicating reduced cardiac sympathetic ganglia function [18].
