In renogran report, right kidney, it reads- there is hold up of the activity in the collection system with complete wash out after lasix (furosemide). Meaning?
No obstruction: The Lasix (furosemide) renal scan you had is good for differentiating a dilated collectong system from true obstruction.

Lasix (furosemide) is given to help flush out the radiotracer; if it washes out then there is no obstruction. ...Read more

Seen answer: It’s not uncommon for one imaging examination to detect an “incidentaloma” – an unrelated observation in the obtained images.

I usually schedule a repeat ultrasound before the 2 month visit when these have either normalized or become more definite. The absence of any dilation of the ureters is the best "good" sign. ...Read more
