Abstract

A scintigraphic estimation was made of the reduction of renal irradiation by Unithiol (U.S.S.R.) on the basis of the authors' previous investigations.

It was found that at 7 days following Unithiol administration the intensity of radiation over both kidneys was significantly reduced in comparison with the control group of patients (without Unithiol). The authors are of the opinion that Unithiol markedly reduces renal irradiation during203Hg Chlormerodrin scintigraphy.
