Absolute 99Tcm-DMSA renal uptake in children: optimum time to scan.


Absolute renal uptake was measured at 2, 4 and 6 h in 27 patients in order to determine a more convenient time for uptake compared with the 6-h measurement proposed by other authors. Measurements made at 2 and 4 h would need to be increased by 20 and 6%, respectively, to convert to the value at 6 h. Measurements at 4 h are a reasonable compromise to achieve… (More)
