scint: Relative renal function by Scintigraphy

Description Usage Format Source Examples

Description

Measurements of the relative kidney function (=renal function) for 111 patients. The percentage of the total renal function present in the left kidney is determined by one reference method, DMSA (static) and by one of two dynamic methods, DTPA or EC.

Usage
