Is Silver Diamine Fluoride Really a Magic Alternative in Pediatric Caries Management? : An Advanced Clinical Approach

Aim: Using single-photon emission scintigraphy to determine the volume of working renal tissue, assess tumours and compensatory capability of the kidneys (SPECT).

Materials and Procedures: Our study comprised 65 patients with kidney parenchyma tumours, 32 patients with cysts, and 15 patients with no kidney pathology. We also looked into 57 children who had a range of non-cancerous diseases. The ratio of the volumes of working tissue and specific activities between the affected and contralateral kidneys, as well as the ratio of the values of the obtained kidney volumes to the appropriate volume for the patient under study, were used, based on his anthropometry data (sex and age).

The biggest compensatory renal reserve is found when the volume of working tissue in the afflicted kidney declines and the volume of the contralateral kidney grows, according to the findings. If the ratio of the damaged kidney volume to the tumour and contralateral is 0.65, and the ratio of their particular activities is 0.75, the instances are classified as tumours with infiltrating growth.

Objects without invading growth are sometimes referred to as tumours.

As a result, the proposed integral parameters enable the assessment of the kidneys’ compensatory potential.

The value of the functional volume acquired via SPECT provides vital information on the working parenchyma of the kidney in tumours. The data used to determine whether indications for conserving surgery should be pursued.
