Its important to find the cause of hydronephrosis. The most common cause is UPJO (obstruction in kidney - pelvis). Since USG cannot make full diagnosis, we need other investigations that includes DTPA. DTPA will help to find the cause, iin addition, provides data about the functional aspect of kidney. Regards
