PURPOSE To compare the sensitivity and specificity of technetium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), spiral computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and power Doppler ultrasonography (US) for the detection and localization of acute pyelonephritis by using histopathologic findings as the standard of reference. MATERIALS AND METHODS Bilateral vesicoureteric reflux was surgically created in 35 piglets (70 kidneys). One week… CONTINUE READING
