Comparison of technetium-99m MAG3 with iodine-131 hippuran by a simultaneous dual channel technique

Academic Article


  • Technetium-99m MAG3, a technetium-labeled analog of hippuran, was compared with [131I] hippuran using a simultaneous dual isotope study in 20 patients. The plasma clearance for MAG3 was lower than that of hippuran, but its plasma concentration was higher, resulting in similar rates of excretion and similar renal time-activity curves. Apart from better statistics with the technetium-labeled agent, there were no clinically significant differences in this group of patients.
