    4. (d)

      All of the above

       
     
  2. 2.
    Renal scintigraphy is performed with 99mTc-DTPA and 99mTc-DMSA. The 99mTc-DTPA scan is unremarkable, but a poor uptake in the kidneys is reported on the 99mTc-DMSA scan. What is the most probable diagnosis?
    1. (a)

      Diabetic nephropathy

       
    2. (b)

      Chronic renal failure
