DTPA Renal Scan

This procedure assesses the function of the kidneys, usually following therapy for kidney abnormalities.

For the procedure, you will be given an injection of DTPA, which causes no reaction, and will be asked to lie down on a table with the scanner under your body to image your kidneys.

The only preparation for this scan is to be very well hydrated.
