Summary of "A practical approach to prevent of recurrent febrile urinary tract infection: An Ultrasonography-oriented Approach is more practical than a Top-down Approach in Infants."

We previously reported that the top-down approach (TDA) for infants with febrile urinary tract infections (fUTIs) could prevent recurrent fUTIs (r-fUTIs) but produced a high number of false positive result of acute -phase Tc dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scintigraphy. Therefore we compared the ultrasonography-oriented approach (USOA) with TDA from the viewpoint of the preventive ability of r-fUTIs.
