Intervention Details:
  • Device: Gamma camera imaging
    Use gamma camera in detection of renal cortical defects

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Comparison between DMSA spect and planar imaging [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Analysis of DMSA spect and planar imaging to clarify early renal cortical defects

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Clarify added value of DMSA spect over planar [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Know if DMSA spect is necessary?
