1. Describe the basic anatomy and physiology of the kidney as it relates to renal imaging.

2. Explain radiopharmaceutical pharmacokinetics as they relate to renal anatomy and physiology to provide a basis for radiopharmaceutical choice in specific disease states.
3. Explain the basic renogram and summarize quantitative parameters in scan interpretation.
4. Describe diuresis renography and suggest steps that can be taken to minimize non-diagnostic or false positive studies.
