Urinary tract diseases are common problem that, if untreated may lead to progressive renal damage. It can be diagnosed by radionuclide techniques or by radiological techniques. Static (cortical) renal scintigraphy with 99mTc-DMSA is a sensitive method for evaluation of any reduction of cortical mass function. Static renal scintigraphy is simple, non-invasive examination. It enables the evaluation of the shape, size, and location of the kidneys, functional status of the renal parenchyma and determination of cortical uptake and separated renal function.
