Not to worry: This is rare and i trust the diagnosis is correct (i.e., not a scarred kidney from illness) and there's no genetic syndrome obvious. I'm also assuming that this was discovered incidentally, that your left kidney is normal, and that your kidney function is good. You can't donate your left kidney to somebody you love. If i'm correct, you just need to protect your good kidney.

If I understand the: Question correctly, the right kidney renogram shows decreased uptake of tracer, which means decreased kidney function, possibly chronic renal disease. Please discuss with your doctor, as this appearance needs to be correlated with your medical condition and the reason your doctor ordered the test.
