PURPOSE Nuclear renal scan is currently the gold standard imaging study to determine differential renal function. We propose helical computerized tomography as a more efficient way to gain renal function information. Renal parenchymal volume is measured and percent total renal volume is used as a surrogate marker for differential renal function. MATERIALS AND METHODS Computerized tomography and diuretic enhanced nuclear renal scan were performed in 33 patients with chronic obstruction… CONTINUE READING
