Abstract

A 6-year-old child underwent a Tc-99m MAG3 dynamic renal scan because of recurrent urinary tract infection. An ultrasound performed 2 weeks before revealed only a right-side hydronephrosis. The summed early image showed a right kidney that seemed to be cut in half. Imaging during voiding showed reflux in the right pelvi-calyceal system. The composite image formed with superimposition of these two frames clearly showed that the reflux affected a functionally excluded lower half of a kidney with unknown complete duplication of the collecting system.
