Details of a series of computer programs associated with a complex renal function procedure, all linked together into a single "macrofunction" are presented. Input consisted of not only in vivo nuclear medicine information, but also data concerning patient identification, urine volumes, voiding time, urine specific gravity, blood pressure and other pertinent information. Computer output consisted of images, curves and typed information presented in an integrated format ready for inclusion into the patient's record. Clinical evaluation of this comprehensive renal function macrofunction has proved to be useful, econominal, rapid and accurate. It has conveniently sorted a wide variety of disease states and provided clinical information not available from any other non-invasive technique. © 1980 Springer-Verlag.
