Abstract

Experiences with 79 children over a 2-yr-period are reported on renal imaging with 99mTc-dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) in pediatric nephrology. Because of its low radiation dose, the use of 99mTc-DMSA has advantages in infancy and childhood, while the considerable accumulation of this compound in the renal cortex results in more informative imaging than with other 99mTc-complexes. Not only can the shape, size and position of the kidneys, and the location and extent of renal tumors, cysts and abscesses, be visualized, but as a complement to excretory urography this technique contributes even in pyelonephritis to the precise determination of parenchymal damage.
