The authors encountered a renal transplant patient in whom tubular stasis permitted sufficient time to perform SPECT using Tc-99m MAG3. SPECT revealed a defect that was not apparent on the planar study. Renal biopsy showed acute vascular rejection. On a subsequent Tc-99m MAG3 SPECT study the defect had resolved.
