will be the imaging after the concentration of the renal tubules. The imaging
can not only show the anatomical structure of the inner cavities of the renal
pelvis, the renal lamp, ureter and the bladder, but also can know the excretory
functions of the kidneys. This can help a lot in the measuring of the kidneys’
functions and the severity of the kidney damages. From the imaging of the IVP,
