The aim of this study was to assess the clinical validity of single-sample methods and gamma camera uptake methods with 99mTc-DTPA for the estimation of the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). The study was performed in 50 patients with various degrees of renal function (29 males and 21 females; age 27-90 yrs; serum creatinine level 0.34-6.49 mg/dl). As a reference the "true" GFR (GFRt) was determined from plasma clearance by means of the two compartment model curve fitting 10 plasma samples. The… CONTINUE READING
