The 99mTc-DTPA renogram is a well established noninvasive method for evaluating and following transplanted kidneys. The examination is useful in distinguishing rejection from acute tubular necrosis as well as demonstrating several less common complications such as vascular occlusion, urinary extravasation, obstruction, and lymphocele. We describe a previously unreported condition involving a transplant kidney (i.e, renal cortical necrosis), which was diagnosed with renal scintigraphy in combination with sonography.
