PATIENTS AND METHODS In a prospective study 62 children, aged 1 month to 9.5 years, mean 2.8 years, underwent diuretic renal scintigraphy and dynamic MR-Nephrography at the same day except for 7 patients with a time interval of 1 day. In all patients we did T2w (water-technique MR-Urography… CONTINUE READING
