My child is going for a DMSA Renal Scan (Nuclear Medicine test) in hospital

This video shows children what happens when doctors check if your kidneys are healthy using a DMSA scan. You get a small amount of radioactivity in this nuclear medicine test and then you need to wait a few hours before your scan. This video helps children and parents to see the difference between a DMSA and a MAG3 scan. Parents can watch this video themselves or together with their child before the appointment depending on the age and ability of the child.
