Özet

Objective Renal cortical scintigraphy is a well-established functional imaging technique for visual analysis of radiopharmaceutical tracer distribution. However, the visual evaluation is subjective, causing interobserver variability, especially in a quantifiable number of scars. The purpose of this study was to develop new computerized methods in renal cortical scintigraphy image interpretation, particularly addressing activity distribution and cortex continuity (scars).
