Familiarity with the history of diuretic renography
helps in understanding current controversies over the timing of this test.

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.
However obstructive pathology requires surgical correction.Key words: Prenatal hydronephrosis pelviureteric junction (PUJ) obstruction vesicoureteric Reflux posterior urethral valve renography

MR excretory urography is a promising technique that affords equivalent functional and additional anatomical information to that of isotope renography
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.
