Abstract

Technetium-99m-labeled N,N-ethylenedicysteine (Tc-99m-EC) is a new renal imaging agent introduced as an alternative for Tc-99m-labeled mercaptoacetyltriglycine (Tc-99m-MAG3), with similar renal excretion characteristics. To evaluate the diagnostic characteristics of this agent, a gamma camera study was performed.
