Cintigrafía renal e hidronefrosis: algunos datos

Any renal tracer with high extraction rate is adequate, but diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid ((99m)Tc-DTPA) does not allow a precise estimation of differential function in children younger than 6 months.
It is generally admitted that the first renogram in children with antenatally detected hydronephrosis should be performed at approximately 1 month of age.
Neither the degree of hydronephrosis nor the impairment of differential function and/or the quality of the response to furosemide can define which kidney is in danger of further deterioration.
