Nuclear medicine techniques are now considered of primary importance for the initial diagnosis and follow-up of renal diseases in children. These techniques are highly sensitive, enabling early detection of disease, often before structural changes are apparent. Nuclear medicine provides unique functional and anatomic information with relatively low radiation exposure and essentially no risk to the patient. Radionuclide techniques can be used safely in all pediatric age groups and in severely ill patients, including those with renal insufficiency. Well known properties of radiopharmaceuticals include their lack of toxic or pharmacologic effects (e.g., osmotic effect, hemodynamic overload) and the fact that they do not provoke allergic reactions.
