Why do you need a renal DTPA scan?

If your kidney is showing any usual symptoms or suffering from a disease, your doctor may prescribe a renal scan.

Your kidneys are responsible for

  • Removing liquid waste, or urea from the blood by producing urine
  • Providing the hormone calcitriol, which is responsible for supplying calcium to bones
  • Producing the hormone erythropoietin, which fosters red blood cell growth
  • Producing the hormone renin, which controls blood pressure
  • Maintaining a balance of chemicals, like potassium and sodium, in the blood


A change in the functioning of your kidneys starts slowly and often with no clear symptoms. In most cases, urine and blood tests may show the first signs of compromised kidney function. Renal DTPA scan can help in identifying the cause of compromised kidney function. There can be many causes such as an injury to the kidneys, obstruction, or a disease.

A renal scan is a great way to diagnose and evaluate any problem you may have in your kidneys. However, renal scans cannot distinguish between a tumor or a cyst. Therefore, your doctor may prescribe further diagnosis.
