Detection of Vesico-Ureteric Reflux Using Voiding Hippuran Ureterograms

Conference:

Abstract

Initial results of a technique for the demonstration of vesico-ureteric reflux in children are described. Hippuran-{sup 131}I (15 {mu}Ci) (ortho-iodohippurate) is injected intravenously. A standard renogram is obtained. Additional collimation is added to the recording probes and they are positioned to record the radioactivity from the mid-ureteric region. Recordings of normal and abnormal peristaltic activity during per-ora hydration of the patient are thus obtained. When the child is willing to void, he is placed upright on a bed pan, the probes positioned to record over the lower ureteric region and recordings are made while the child voids. All data are recorded on a 512-channel analyser operated in the multi-scaler node. Data are punched out on paper tape and, after an 11 point computer smoothing program, are displayed graphically. These recordings show different patterns in normal children and those with vesico-ureteric reflux. There are several advantages to this technique over the standard radiological and other radionuclide voiding cystoureterograms. The results are compared with contrast voiding cystourethrograms in both normal children and those with vesico-ureteric reflux. (author)
