Abstract

Scintiphotographic visualization of renal transplant accumulation of 99mTc sulfur colloid was evaluated in 21 patients with renal transplants. 41 examinations were performed comparing transplant activity with bone marrow activity and clinical or pathological diagnosis. A marked degree of transplant radiocolloid accumulation was seen in chronic rejection. Patients with normal transplant function, acute rejection, or acute tubular necrosis presented with slight or absent transplant radioactivity.
