Diagnostic role of radionuclide methods in patients with pyelonephritis

P.O. Korol


Acute and chronic forms of pyelonephritis are the most common diseases of the urinary system in all age groups. The incidence rate of acute pyelonephritis in children is 19.1 per 1000, chronic pyelonephritis — 5–12.5 per 1000 people. In this paper, based on retrospective analysis, the diagnostic role of radionuclide imaging methods in acute and chronic pyelonephritis has been studied. Due to high sensitivity, radionuclide methods of research allow determining the degree of functional and topographical changes in each kidney in patients with pyelonephritis — secretory function and the nature of passage of the radiopharmaceutical through the renal collecting system and ureter. Radionuclide research methods are sensitive and accurate methods of radiation imaging in pyelonephritis, as well as reliable means for dynamic monitoring in the postoperative observation of patients. The use of radionuclide imaging techniques allows you to establish the cause and effects of pyelonephritis and to develop a rational treatment plan.
