Direct Radionuclide Cystography is a diagnostic nuclear test that uses a solution containing radioactive material to outline the bladder to diagnose conditions such as reflux, distention or incomplete emptying. ❰❰ PATIENTS INSTRUCTIONS • This procedure requires exposure to radioactive material. • If there is a possibility

Cortical Renal Scintigraphy

Cortical Renal Scintigraphy assesses kidney function and displays viable kidney tissue. It is based upon the use of the radioactive tracer, Tc-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA). This agent is delivered to the renal cortex and is retained for several hours. This allows measurement of relative left and right renal (kidney) function and is a very

Dynamic Renal Scintigraphy

By |2021-07-30T13:21:02+03:00May 12th, 2014|Urinary system|

Dynamic Renal Scintigraphy can determine overall renal (kidney) function and also relative left and right kidney function. The test is performed using the radiotracer called Tc99m-DTPA (Diethylene Triamine Pentacaetic Acid) or Tc99m-MAG3 (Mercaptoacetyltriglycine). The test is often used in combination with a diuretic drug such as frusemide to determine if a kidney is
