99mTc-MAG3/Renal Scintigraphy and Functional Parameters for the Evaluation of Cisplatin Nephrotoxicity
BELKIS ERBAŞ, HALUK ÖZEN, MURAT LEKİLİ, GÜNAYDIN ERBENGİ, COŞKUN BEKDİK

Renal function of patients who have received nephrotoxic chemotherapy (cisplatinum) for testicular carcinoma was evaluated scintigraphically using a new renal radiopharmaceutical agent, 99mTc-MAG3. Perfusion index (PI), effective renal plasma flow (ERPF), time to maximum extraction (T max), time to half-maximum excretion(T1/2) were performed and compared to normal values. PI, ERPF, T max and T1/2 showed good correlations with BUN, creatinine, and creatinine clearance. 99mTc-MAG3 may be a valuable and reliable method to follow-up the renal functions of patients who receive nephrotoxic chemotherapy
