It is shown that free iodine in a concentration of 3-5 in I131 labelled Hypaque diatrizoate and Hippuran can cause a comparatively large error when these radiopaque substances are used in renal clearance studies. The free iodine is largely a result of autoradiolysis, a problem which may be alleviated by using I125 labelled solutions.
