Simultaneous measurements of the clearance rates of technetium 99m diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (99mTc-DTPA) and chronium 51 ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (51Cr-EDTA) were performed in 30 patients with a range of renal function (glomerular filtration rates between 9 and 120 ml/min). Using multiple blood samples, the two clearance values correlated well (r=0.991, standard error 3.9 ml/min), but DTPA clearance was systematically higher by 7.6%. For each radiopharmaceutical, an equation… CONTINUE READING
