DMSA renal imaging is used to assess the function of your kidneys and can distinguish between kidney diseases and other disorders affecting the kidneys.
When you arrive for your appointment, you will receive an injection with a small amount of radioactive tracer. You will then be given a return time, which is usually two to three hours later. When you return, a series of images will be taken of your kidneys. This will take approximately one hour. Additional images may be taken if the nuclear medicine physician requests. You should schedule approximately four to five hours for a DMSA renal imaging test.
