A preliminary phantom study on a proposed model for quantification of renal planar scintigraphy.

Abstract

A method for estimation of the absolute renal activity within background activity in renal planar scintigraphy will be presented. This method corrects for oversubtraction of background activity with consideration of background activity of the kidney volume, and employs the depth-independent buildup factor (DIBF) method for the correction of attenuation and… (More)
