Kinetic Studies Comparing Nuclear Methods With Contrast-Enhanced Computed Tomography
Renal and CSF kinetics were examined in adult male rhesus monkeys by both computer-based nuclear medicine techniques and serial, contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT). Typical time-activity and time-density curves are obtained. Each method has its own advantages, problems, and potential clinical uses.
