Iodohippurate sodium I 131 clearances were used to evaluate renal function in 15 patients after transplantation. The iodohippurate clearance was found to be of prognostic value if performed during the first day after transplantation. In addition, it was helpful in evaluating renal function and detecting renal transplant rejection, especially during the first four weeks following surgery.
