VILLARROEL FERNANDEZ, Lizz Nataly; ZEBALLOS ORELLANA, Antonio  and  FERNANDEZ DAZA, Neysa Faviola. Studies applied to nuclear medicine pathology nephrourinary. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2016, vol.39, n.2, pp.116-119. ISSN 1012-2966.

This article is a literature review of the applicable studies using nuclear technology highlighting its usefulness in renal scintigraphy studies. The renal scan is a method using radioisotope nephro-urological, generating curves activity/time for recording, dynamic sequential acquisition of images of the kidney and consequently the qualitative and quantitative analysis of the information. The purpose of this article is to highlight the importance of Nuclear Medicine studies applied to pathologies nephrourinary. The usefulness of this procedure is diverse allowing the identification of functional morphological alterations, perfusorio, and renal excretory. Similarly these procedures are applicable in the evaluation of urinary tract infections, kidney transplant, renal function, early detection of possible complications; study the progression of chronic allograft nephropathy, evaluation of response to treatment of rejection crises, monitoring treatment and / or surgical recovery, among others mentioned below in detail.

Keywords : renogram; radioisotopes; nephrourinary pathologies.
