99mTc diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (stannous) is cleared from the blood by glomerular filtration. However, calculation of the glomerular filtration rate has required analysis of serial blood samples drawn over intervals of several hours in order to determine the radionuclide clearance rate. This lengthy procedure can be circumvented by the direct… (More)
