We have performed 955 studies on 152 patients with 167 renal transplants. Images were recorded following bolus injection of 12-15 mCi Tc-99m DTPA (Sn). The data were stored on a computer and analyzed by generation of region-of-interest curves from (a) the iliac artery distal to the transplant, (b) the kidney, and (c) a background area. A perfusion index was adopted: formula see text. In 276 studies the patient clearly had acute tubular necrosis (ATN), rejection, or a normal kidney on… CONTINUE READING
