Özet

Purpose: This study was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of technetium-99m N,N-ethylenedicysteine (Tc-99m EC) in comparison to technetium-99m dimercaptosuccinic acid (Tc-99m DMSA) scintigraphy. Differential renal function (DRF) was calculated by both methods and the cortical-phase images of dynamic Tc-99m EC scintigraphy were evaluated for parenchymal defects.
