BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Diethylenetriamine penta acetic acid (99mTc-DTPA), a substance which indicates glomerular filtration, is distributed equally in blood and tissue after a bolus intravenously injection. Ambulatory Renal Monitor (ARM) is a portable and non invasive device which monitors extracorporeally the clearance of intravenously injected 99mTc-DTPA. We examined correlation between half-time of clearance estimated by ARM and glomerular filtration rare, and clinical usefulness of ARM for… CONTINUE READING
