Gamma Camera Renogram
You have been scheduled for a Renal study 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 will be injected into a vein in your arm. Painless images will be obtained for approximately one hour.
