|Abstract:||The diagnostic value of 99m-Tc-DMSA renal scintigraphy was assessed in 156 kidneys of 107 patients with a variety of obstructive nephropathies. DMSA renal cortical imaging well demonstrated morphological changes in the renal parenchyma around the dilated pelvocalyceal system. DMSA renal uptake, as a marker of cortical functioning mass, paralleled the grading of the hydronephrotic changes on IVP. DMSA renal scintigram well visualizes the residual functioning area in the renal parenchyma and DMSA renal uptake enables to assess separate renal function quantitatively. This method can be repeatedly performed in the observation of renal function of this disease before and after the treatment and is a useful adjunct for evaluating clinical courses and the result of treatment.|
