INTRODUCTION Various parameters can be derived from a renogram, but the relationship between uptake and perfusion pattern on Tc-99m DTPA time-activity curves has not been evaluated to date. A previous report documented sequential changes in the relationship between perfusion and uptake in renal transplant donors. The current study looked at serial changes in renogram patterns in kidneys exhibiting hyperfiltration. The aim was to reveal the pathophysiological significance of different perfusion… CONTINUE READING
