Renal uptakes of 99mTc-MAG3, 99mTc-DTPA, and 99mTc-DMSA in rabbits with unilateral ureteral obstruction.

Abstract

Renal function measurements using (99m)Tc-DTPA and (99m)Tc-MAG(3) dynamic scintigraphs were compared to those obtained using (99m)Tc-DMSA static scintigraphy. Eighteen experimental rabbits were randomly divided into (99m)Tc-DTPA-, (99m)Tc-MAG(3)-, and (99m) Tc-DMSA-injected groups. Experimental unilateral renal damage was induced by ligating a unilateral right ureter in 18 rabbits. Scintigraphic images were obtained at 2 and 5 h after intravenous injection of (99m)Tc-DMSA, or immediately after administration of (99m)Tc-DTPA or (99m)Tc-MAG(3). For the dynamic images using (99m)Tc-DTPA and (99m)Tc-MAG(3), rapid sequential images were obtained every 2 s for 30 images up to 1 min. The three groups presented different relative renal functions between the left normal and the right abnormal kidneys at 1, 2, 3, and 4 weeks post-ligation (p<0.05). However, the between-group comparisons showed no significant differences at any time. These results suggest that dynamic images of (99m)Tc-DTPA and (99m)Tc-MAG(3) can be used to measure the relative renal function in place of the static image of (99m)Tc-DMSA.
