    Default how to code below document

    Lasix renal scan with diuretic washout, 9/5/2011 2:00 PM.

    COMPARISON: CT scan of the abdomen pelvis dated 9/4/2011 and 8/30/2008.

    10.0 mCi technetium 99m MAG3 was injected. Imaging of the kidneys was
    performed for 20 minutes. The patient then received 20 Lasix intravenously,
    and imaging was continued for a total of 60 minutes.

    Perfusion to the kidneys is prompt and symmetric.

    There is prompt right renal uptake and excretion with complete washout
    following Lasix administration.

    Left kidney shows prompt tubular function and transit to the renal pelvis.
    Following the administration of Lasix there is increasing activity in the
    renal pelvis with minimal washout. This represents obstruction and is at
    the ureteropelvic junction.

    The split function is 45.6% on the left and 54.4% on the right.

    Left ureteropelvic junction obstruction.
