5000+ scans done & counting

A DTPA Renogram, also known as a Diethylenetriamine Penta-acetic Acid Renogram or Renal Scintigraphy, is an important diagnostic imaging procedure used to evaluate the function and anatomy of the kidneys. These important organs are involved in various physiological activities such as waste filtering, blood pressure management, electrolyte balancing, and red blood cell production.

During a DTPA Renogram test, a small amount of a radioactive material, DTPA, is injected into the bloodstream. This radioactive tracer travels to the kidneys, where it is processed and eventually excreted in the urine. Sensitive gamma cameras capture images of the kidneys and urinary tract, allowing healthcare professionals to evaluate their function and detect any abnormalities.

The DTPA Renogram procedure aims to evaluate kidney function, identify illnesses and infections, discover urinary tract obstructions, assess blood flow to the kidneys, and monitor the health of those who received kidney transplants. In some situations, a diuretic may be delivered during the DTPA Renogram to measure renal function under stress. The test can also incorporate GFR estimation and split function analysis, offering a thorough evaluation.

To effectively protect your kidney health, it is important to choose a reliable diagnostics center for the DTPA Renogram test near you before concerns arise. Consider Sprint Diagnostics in Hyderabad as a trustworthy alternative for one of the leading diagnostics centers, offering accurate assessments.
