Eighteen healthy people over 65 years of age were studied to compare the 99mTC-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (DTPA) clearance, the measured 24-hour creatinine clearance and the assessed creatinine clearance using the Cockcroft and Gault (C-G) formula to measure their glomerular filtration rate. Significant correlations were found between the isotopic method and the measured creatinine clearance (r = 0.71; p less than 0.001); the measured creatinine clearance and the C-G formula (r = 0.81… CONTINUE READING
