Practical uses of a quantitative renal scintillation camera study.

Academic Article


  • A quantitative renal scintillation camera study has been described for the evaluation of total renal function and the split function of the two kidneys by a noninvasive technic. It requires no patient preparation, is not affected by bowel gas, and no allergic reactions have been reported. Six cases are reported to illustrate its usefulness with renal tumors, neurogenic bladders, pyelonephritis, nephrolithiasis, congenital anomalies, and renal insufficiency.
