UNLABELLED Correction represents a potential source of error in estimating split renal function and camera-based clearances. The purpose of this study was to determine which of five background options and four time intervals was associated with the least error for 99mTc-mercaptoacetyltriglycine (MAG3). METHODS Fifteen single-kidney patients were imaged supine after 111-370 MBq (3-10 mCi) 99mTc-MAG3 injection. A phantom kidney was drawn on the 2-3-min images, approximately equal in size to the… CONTINUE READING
