Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
99m Tc-Sestamibi SPEC/CT is a nuclear imaging study used to investigate ischaemic heart disease and parathyroid nodules. Recently its use in renal mass imaging has increased as early research has shown its ability to help differentiate benign renal oncocytomas from malignant renal cell carcinomas.

Brand Name of 99m Tc-Sestamibi Tracer - Cardiolite
Dose administered to patient is 925 MBq
Effective radioactivity dose to patient is 5.32 mSv (with CT)
75-95 minutes must pass prior to imaging to enable effective renal uptake
Imaging takes approximately 30 min
Intervention code [1] 314386 0
Diagnosis / Prognosis
Comparator / control treatment
Comparator - as per the selection criteria all participants selected for recruitment must be having a renal biopsy in the near future as part of the ongoing investigation for their undiagnosed renal mass.

The histopathological diagnosis following the biopsy will be compared to the findings of the sestamibi scan.
Control group
Active

Outcomes
Primary outcome [1] 319970 0
The objective of this study is to establish whether the 99mTc-sestamibi tracer is effective in its ability to differentiate renal cell carcinoma from oncocytoma.

Findings from the Sestamibi scan (ie. likely presence of renal cell carcinoma, oncocytoma, or other) will be compared to the histopathological diagnosis following biopsy.

An accurate Sestamibi finding will be one that strongly suggests oncocytoma as per the radiological interpretation and is associated with a histopathological diagnosis of oncocytoma from the tissue sample.

Timepoint [1] 319970 0
Each Sestamibi SPEC/CT will be interpreted within 1 week of the imaging study.

Summary
Brief summary
What is the purpose of this study?
The purpose is to investigate the possible role of specialised imaging called Sestamibi SEPC/CT in the diagnosis of renal masses.

Who is it for?
You are eligible to participate in this study if you are an adult that has had a renal mass detected and are scheduled to undergo a renal biopsy in the near future.

Study details
All willing and suitable participants will undergo specialised imaging involving a scan that takes approximately 45 minutes. The results of the imaging study will be compared with the results of the renal biopsy to be arranged as per normal by the patients urologist.

If proven to be effective in its ability to differentiate renal oncocytomas from renal cell carcinoma the sestamibi imaging technique could be more frequently used in the standard investigation of renal masses detected on abdominal imaging. In doing so the number of invasive renal biopsies may decline.
