Renogram with Lasix (Renal Flow/Function/Images)
Gamma Camera You have been scheduled for a Renal Study with Lasix which involves the use of a small amount of radioactive material. The level of radioactivity used is extremely low and has no side effects.

You will be positioned next to a special detector called a gamma camera (see photo). The camera does not produce any radiation. It will be placed close to the part of your body being imaged.

Patient Preparation
Hydrate before injection.

A small amount of radioactive material and Lasix (a diuretic) will be injected into a vein in your arm. Painless Images will be obtained for approximately 60 minutes.
