Quantitative evaluation of iodine-123 hippuran gamma camera renography in normal children.

In a retrospective study of 39 normal children submitted to [123I]hippuran gamma camera renography, a quantitative evaluation of the recorded data showed that: (a) the rate constant for renal plasma clearance of [123I]hippuran was -0.166 +/- 0.043 min-1 corresponding to a hippuran plasma clearance of 518 +/- 142 ml/min per 1.73 m2; (b) the fractional renal clearance of [123I]hippuran was 0.51 +/- 0.03 and 0.49 +/- 0.03 for the left and the right kidney, respectively; and (c) the mean values for the mean transit times of [123I]hippuran through the whole kidney, the renal parenchyma, and the renal pelvis, respectively, were 4.2, 1.9, and 2.5 min. Five kidneys (in four patients) showed prolonged renal mean transit times of [123I]hippuran. Follow-up renographies were performed in three of the four children and gave normal results. Patients with renal mean transit times above the present 5% significance limit of 8.2 min should not necessarily be considered having an abnormal renal function.[1]
