does anybody know what the split function is representing and if this is normal left 54%, right 46%. I had a ureterovaginal fistular in my ureter, but have scarring in both due to damage during hysterectomy, I had bilateral stents removed 6 months ago. Just want to know what 'normal' readings are, many thanks for your support and help.
The split-function renogram indicates the functional capacity of each kidney, so your test indicates left kidney function at 54% and right kidney function as 46%. As, they are almost equal, the results appear to be normal.
