Since its development in the late 1970s, diuretic renography
has been a commonly used test for diagnosing suspected hydronephrosis.
The RFL following LPN was calculated by examining the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and radioisotope renography
one year postoperatively.
Glomerular filtration rate estimated from the uptake phase of 99mTc-DTPA renography
in chronic renal failure.
The role of diuretic renography
in the evaluation of obstructed hydronephrosis after pediatric pyeloplasty.
Though fortunately there was no progression to acute pyelonephritis or urosepsis, ultimately a nuclear radioisotope renography
confirmed the right kidney, affected by the nephrolithiasis, to be essentially nonfunctional; thus resulting in the recommendation for a unilateral nephrectomy, which was performed without complication.

Can renal doppler sonography replace diuretic radionuclide renography
in infants with hydronephrosis Turk J Pediatr 2006; 48:221-7.
The side is selected on the basis of radioisotope renography
and vascular anatomy seen on computed tomography (CT) with three-dimensional reconstruction.
If the VCUG is normal and hydronephrosis persists, an obstructive process must be excluded by diuretic renography
or excretory urography.
using Tc-99m MAG-3 clarifies the significance of hydronephrosis and/or hydro-ureter.
2,3] The role of renography
in children with moderate and severe hydronephrosis is to assist to identify children who need surgical intervention.
Nephrectomy is preferred over vascular reconstruction procedures if the kidney cannot be saved due to size of the infarct, severely compromised renal function on isotope renography
or if the revascularization would be extremely tough due to involvement of a branch artery.
