Before surgery, all participants were evaluated regarding AP diameter and cortical thickness of affected kidney by ultrasonography, which were all done by the same radiologist, 99technetium DTPA renal scan
and voiding cystourethrogram were performed (to assess VUR).
Our followup period was also limited to the first postoperative renal scan
in patients who underwent a pyeloplasty.
The latter group merit close clinical follow-up and possibly a technetium Tc 99m succimer renal scan
(MAG 3 DTPA) were done at 4-6 weeks in all cases having moderate to severe hydronephrosis or in whom hydronephrosis was not settling or was gradually increasing favoring the diagnosis of pelvi-ureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction.
However 99mTc DTPA renal scan
is also available along with other radionuclide techniques like 99mTc MAG3 and DMSA scintigraphy.
The nuclear medicine diagnostic techniques used in this study were; heart scan (Rest and Stress MIBI), bone scan, renal scan
, liver scan, thyroid scan and thallium heart scan.
For example, 15% have only one kidney and a renal scan
or X-ray of this area may also be recommended.
Among the medical procedures where Tc-99m is used are: Lung Scintigraphy Tc-99m Pertechnetate for Meckel's scan; Tc-99m Labelled RBC's for Gastro-intestinal Bleeding, Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER) and Gastric Emptying Time (GET); Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis; Liver scan; Liver SPECT scan; Hepatobiliary; Renal Scintigraphy; DMSA Renal scan
; DTPA Renal scan
with In-Vitro Test; Diuretic Renal scan
with In-Vitro Test; Captopril Pre and Post DTPA; Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR) with in-Vitro test; Renal scan
MAG 3; Renal SPECT scan; and Bone Scintigraphy.
Since I've beaten cancer, my treatment has left me with chronic kidney disease and I needed a renal scan
Crying "My cancer had left me with kidney disease and I'd gone for a renal scan
at the hospital.
Kidney hypertrophy was seen by ultrasound or by renal scan
in 17 (39.
Most of the children (87%) underwent the renal scan
at the end of the follow-up period.
