Correlation between glomerular filtration rate with gamma camera and estimated serum creatinine clearance from Cockcroft and Gault's formula

IJNM, Study concludes that SCrCl using Cockcroft and Gault's formula could serve as an instant, easy, and reliable method for assessing kidney function. SCrCl with Cockcroft and Gault's formula is more useful for rapid estimation of global GFR for those patients who are not accessible to DTPA renogram with gamma camera. www.ijnm.in/text.asp?2012/27/2/85/110684.

RP-3 & RP-21- Patient-specific syringe fractionate unit dose model: Practicable and economical approach of cold kit fractionation in hospital radio pharmacy


Radiopharmacy: Indian J Nucl Med, 2011, Study concludes that the developed "Patient Specific Syringe Fractionate Unit Dose Model" is an easy, cost effective, and feasible for any hospital radio pharmacy laboratory. It improves the prompt nuclear medicine service quality by increasing patient’s satisfaction. http://www.ijnm.in/text.asp?2011/26/5/37/90733.
