What is DMSA scan?
The DMSA scan is an imaging procedure where a radiotracer dye called DMSA or dimercaptosuccinic acid is injected into the blood vessels which enters the kidneys. The kidneys are then scanned by special cameras to detect gamma rays emitted by the dye. This allows the creation of a detailed image of the kidneys and also helps to assess the kidney function.
Why is DMSA scan done?
- To assess the function and the structural abnormalities of the kidneys like size, or shape of kidneys
- To diagnose any underlying infections or abscesses
- To monitor the efficacy of the kidney treatments
- To assess if there is any rejection of a kidney transplant
