The scintillation camera has to date been used primarily as a qualitative pictorial device. This report reviews the results obtained in a series of over 300 patients with scintillation camera studies of kinetics of  renal iodine (131I)-hippuran transport;  hepatic uptake and excretion of 131I-rose bengal; and  renal, cerebral, and cardiac blood flow with 99mTc pertechnetate. Scintillation camera renography permits visual monitoring of flow of radiohippuran through renal parenchyma and pelvis concomitant with inscription of a renogram curve. Since it affords assessment of kidney size and ureteral patency, the technique is of great value in the differentiation of
