- Captopril scintigraphy in the diagnosis of renovascular hypertension. Sfakianakis, George N.; Jaffe, David J.; Bourgoignie, Jacques J. // Kidney International Supplement;Sep1988, Issue 25, p142
Reports on the role of captopril scintigraphy in the diagnosis of renovascular hypertension; Improvement in the sensitivity and the specificity of renograms through tests after pretreatment with captopril; Predictive value of radionuclide methods in the diagnosis of unilateral renovascular...
- THE HIPPURAN RENOGRAM. Herron, George; Barbour, Benjamin H. // Angiology;Aug1961, Vol. 12 Issue 8, p352
Hippuran has been the radioiodinated material of preference in our renogram studies. With this material, we have studied patients with unilateral renal abnormalities and with bilateral renal disease, as well as normals, and we have found a curve that is representative of each group. A more...
- renography. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p656
An encyclopedia entry for "renography" is presented. Renography is a technique that uses a radioactive substance to measure kidney function, and it is also known as renal scintigraphy. The technique is used when obstruction of the passage of urine is suspected. The process involves the injection...

- kidney function tests. Peters, Michael // BMA A-Z Family Medical Encyclopedia;2004, p449
An encyclopedia entry for "kidney function tests" is presented. They refer to tests performed to investigate kidney disorders. In urinalysis, a urine sample is examined under a microscope for blood cells, pus cells and casts. Kidney function can be evaluated by measuring the concentration in the...
- Aspirin renography to detect unilateral renovascular hypertension. Imanishi, Masahito; Yano, Michiko; Hayashida, Kohei; Ishida, Yoshio; Takamiya, Makoto; Kimura, Genjiro; Kojima, Shunichi; Kawano, Yuhei; Matsuhshima, Yohkazu; Matsuko, Hiroaki; Omae, Teruo // Kidney International;Apr1994, Vol. 45 Issue 4, p1170
The article discusses on the detection of renal arterial stenosis through aspirin renography. It studies patients with or without unilateral renal arterial stenosis and tries renography in combination with aspirin administration. It also suggests that such renography may be a new noninvasive and...
- A METABOLIC ASPECT OF RENAL HYPERTENSION. Read, George // Australian Journal of Experimental Biology & Medical Science;Apr1957, Vol. 35 Issue 2, p163
Kidneys of normal and hypertensive rats were incubated in the form of tissue slice or homogenate with a large number of amino-acids and other sub-stances. The resulting mixture was injected intravenously into assay rats to detect any pressor substances produced. A mixture of methionine, valine,...
