FULL TEXT  


Obstruc­tive urop­athy ­refers to the con­di­tion of obstruc­tion to ­urine ­flow ­from the ­kidney to the ­bladder. ­Such obstruc­tion may be ­acute or ­chronic, com­plete or incom­plete, and uni­lat­eral or bilat­eral. It has ­many ­diverse ­causes ­each ­with ­their own spe­cific fea­tures and yet ­each pro­ducing sim­ilar dis­tur­bances to ­renal func­tion and ­urine ­flow. ­This ­paper dis­cusses the ­unique ­role of ­nuclear med­i­cine tech­niques in the diag­nosis and man­age­ment of uri­nary ­tract obstruc­tion in cur­rent uro­log­ical prac­tice.
