Tc99m-DMSA renal scan findings of this project was to study aimed to determine the frequency of congenital anomalies of the kidney. Obtain the spectrum of anomalies, can be used for future intervention studies. Using the experience gained from this study and future studies may be conducted and mitigation measures to achieve a specific distribution.
Materials and Methods:
In this descriptive - analytic study of 41 children from 1 month to 12 years who were referred to the nuclear medicine Birjand on 01/01/90 to 07/30/91 on non-probability sampling were selected With the Czech List Frequency congenital renal scanning Tc99m-DMSA for 19 months collecting and using version 19, SPSS, descriptive tables extracted from the chi- square test or Exact Fisher test for statistical analysis at a significance level of 0 / 05 was used .
In this study, age 4/51 ± 3.40, 4 types of congenital renal anomalies in 12 boys (29/3%) and 29 females (70/7%) were. 32 patients (78%) had normal renal and 9 patients (22%) had abnormal kidney. Most common congenital anomalies of the kidney include Absent, Duplex in 6 (66/6%) were.
An anomaly in this study between age and the age of the child during pregnancy, birth, baby's sex, place of residence, the child who found no significant relationship. In this study, the most common congenital renal Absent, Duplex were.
