ABSTRACT
$^{99m}Tc-MAG3$ Scintigraphic Scan is sensitive at depicting focal parenchymal abnormalities and can be used for the measurement of overall renal function. We experienced a 12-year-old girl presenting with fever and flank pain. On the ultrasonogram and post-voiding delayed image of $^{99m}Tc-MAG3$ scintigraphic scan, severe right cortical atrophy and hydronephrosis with vesicoureteral reflux were detected. We could demonstrate the reflux nephropathy by these two diagnostic work-up without conventional voiding cystourethrography.
Key words: $^{99m}Tc-MAG3$ scan | Vesicoureteral reflux | Reflux nephropathy
