GFR was determined in 16 patients using an external detector to monitor disappearance of a single injected dose of 99mTc-DTPA (Sn) simultaneously with determinations of GFR using plasma sample methods for 99mTc-DTPA (Sn) and 51Cr-EDTA. Values of GFR were correlated closely between the external determinations of GFR and the plasma sample methods of 51Cr-EDTA and 99mTc-DTPA (Sn) with correlation coefficients of 0.97 and 0.99, respectively. Although the external detector method is apparently… CONTINUE READING
