Gallbladder Visualization on MAG-3 Renal Scan

MAG3 may be visualized in the gallbladder in patients with renal failure or those in a fasting state.

Because of biliary excretion of MAG-3, it is possible for MAG-3 to accumulate in loops of bowel and mimic urinary leak in patients with renal insufficiency.
