A nuclear medicine DMSA image of the kidneys in a 5-year old child demonstrates a wedge-shaped defect in the right kidney, representing an area of non-functioing tissue. This may indicate an area of infection or infarcted (dead) tissue.

Note: Images are shown for illustrative purposes. Do not attempt to draw conclusions or make diagnoses by comparing these images to other medical images, particularly your own. Only qualified physicians should interpret images; the radiologist is the physician expert trained in medical imaging.
