Abstract

Several cases are presented to illustrate how the radioisotope renogram has become an important adjunct in the postoperative evaluation of cancer patients requiring ileal conduit urinary diversion. The use of the renogram in the immediate postoperative period is best exemplified by its ability to aid in differentiating between the causes of oliguria. The sensitivity of the renogram in detecting urinary tract obstruction makes it particularly valuable in the long term management of these patients, whose urinary tract is in constant jeopardy, since it is safer and more convenient than commonly employed radiographic procedures.
