A renogram scan is used to find out how well each kidney is working (the kidney function), and shows how well urine is leaving, or draining from the kidneys
A renogram scan is an examination of the kidneys, ureters and bladder using a radioactive tracer. It shows the blood supply and measures how the kidneys’ function. The kidneys filter the tracer which passes out through your bladder (or stoma if you have one); this process is scanned (detected) using a Gamma Camera. The scan also gives information on the size, shape and position of the kidneys.
A renogram scan is used to find out how well each kidney is working (the kidney function). It also shows how well urine is leaving, or draining from the kidneys. This may help to determine whether there is a blockage that affects the flow of urine from the kidneys.
The costs of a Renogram scan are covered by most medical insurance policies, but please check with your insurer first. If you are paying for your own scan, please ask for the cost of the procedure to be explained when you book the appointment.
