Renal scan is used to diagnose certain kidney diseases. It shows not only the anatomy of the kidneys, also the function as well by using specific radionuclide. The functional information allows doctors to give early diagnose of certain diseases and various medical conditions much sooner than other imaging examinations. This study aimed to know how well people know about kidney nuclear imaging. A survey was conducted for 64 participants and it covered a variety of questions. The study showed that the highest percentage of knowledge about nuclear medicine was within the student group, 70-60%. The physician's percentages were closed or even slightly lower than the percentages of others group.
