The authors report the findings of a radionuclide diuretic renogram in a patient with markedly dilated pelves bilaterally that filled most of the abdominal cavity. With the patient in the sitting position, at the end of the furosemide injection, there was good delineation and filling of the dilated calyces. These findings are unusual because of the extensive pelvicaliceal dilatation, and they emphasize the importance of the sitting position.
