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 extensive investigation among the hypertensive population with this simple inexpensive technique may detect occult circulatory renal abnormalities causing hyperion. We are currently exploring this field.
