      Renal transplantation is the treatment of choice for managing patients with end-stage kidney disease. Being submitted to a very serious surgical procedure, renal transplant recipients can only benefit from follow-up imaging and monitoring strategies. Ultrasound is considered as the principal imaging test in the evaluation of renal transplants.   Examination of the renal artery is very difficult by gray-scale sonography and is greatly enhanced by Doppler and color Doppler sonography,1, 66, 67 which show high velocity and turbulence at the stenotic site.1, 67 However, this requires visualization of the entire renal artery (and sometimes multiple arteries) which, even in expert hands, is.

      State standard scan protocols for performing a focused renal/genitourinary ultrasound exam; Recognize normal ultrasound characteristics associated with the kidneys and urinary bladder; Identify commonly seen pathology associated with the renal/genitourinary system. Outline clinical decision making related to renal/genitourinary ultrasound findings. The most common indication for a point-of-care ultrasound (PoC US) of the urinary tract in the emergency department (ED) is flank pain, responsible for approximately 2 million ED visits in the United States annually. About 20% of patients presenting with flank pain have nephrolithiasis.[1] While computed tomography (CT) imaging is the gold standard for diagnosing urinary tract stones, PoC US.

      Renal dimensions • Length of normal kidney: 9 – 14 cm Right kidney smaller than left kidney • Discrepancy > 2 cm between two kidneys: Considered significant & needs further evaluation • Renal length between 8 – 9 cm Correlated to patient’s phenotype particularly height • Renal length. Renal sonography is an essential diagnostic tool in nephrology. It represents a first‐choice diagnostic procedure for assessment of several kidney and urinary tract diseases because of its considerable effectiveness in imaging studies of different structures that constitute the kidney parenchyma.

Renal Ultrasound Anatomy. The kidney is a bean-shaped organ, which has usually a smooth convex lateral organ boundary. The renal parenchyma is homogeneously hypoechoic, sometimes the medullary pyramids are somewhat less echogenic than the cortex. The surrounding fat tissue and the pyelocalyceal system with parapelvic fat is hyperechoic.

That is why we shall emphasize practical advice and diagnostic. Doppler ultrasound of the kidneys is essential in the assessment and diagnosis of kidney diseases. There are several diseases involving the kidneys.

Some are functional, diffuse and systematic. Using Doppler imaging provides an assessment of vascular changes which is easily evaluated.

Doppler investigation is widely used for assessment of the perfusion of renal : Moawia Gameraddin. A kidney ultrasound may be performed to assist in placement of needles used to biopsy (obtain a tissue sample) the kidneys, to drain fluid from a cyst or abscess, or to place a drainage tube.

This procedure may also be used to determine blood flow to the kidneys through the renal arteries and veins. A kidney ultrasound, also called a renal ultrasound, uses sound waves to examine the kidneys. It also looks at the bladder. You may be asked to come to the test with a full bladder so that the area can be viewed with first a full, then empty, bladder.

A kidney ultrasound is an imaging test that uses sound waves to look at your kidneys. It can check the size, shape, and location of your kidneys. It also lets your healthcare provider see how well blood is flowing to your kidneys. The healthcare provider uses a device called a.

The high accuracy of ultrasound in the diagnosis of renal cysts has made sonography the test of choice and spurred investigation of a multitude of pathologic processes of the kidneys and pararenal organs by ultrasound. Of the various modalities, ultrasonography is the technique that yields considerable diagnostic information with the least risk.

Renal artery stenosis (RAS) refers to a narrowing of a renal artery. When the process occurs slowly, it leads to secondary hypertension. Acute renal artery stenosis does not lead to hypersecretion of renin. Pathology When the stenosis occurs sl.

According to various studies the sensitivity and specificity of Doppler ultrasound in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis lies approximately at 90% [32, 33]. Due to the fact that renovascular hypertension in individuals with mild and medium hypertension has a.

Renal ultrasound, referred to as sonography, is a test that is conducted by employing sound waves to create images of the kidney, the ureter and the bladder. During the renal ultrasound procedure, the sound waves capture the images of the kidney and display it on the computer screen. The ultrasound technician will perform this procedure for.

ULTRASOUND OF THE RENAL ARTERIES - NORMAL RENAL ARTERIES. There are 2 techniques, direct method and indirect method, used to investigate renal arterial ideally are used in conjuction with each other, however, in circumstances where the renal artery is not seen in its entirety then the indirect approach alone can give an indication of vascular disease.Ultrasound is commonly used in nephrology for diagnostic studies of the kidneys and lower urinary tract and to guide percutaneous procedures, such as insertion of hemodialysis catheters and kidney biopsy.

Nephrologists must, therefore, have a thorough understanding of renal anatomy and the sonographic appearance of normal kidneys and lower urinary tract, and they must be able to recognize.Kidney ultrasounds assess blood flow to the kidneys and detect kidney stones, cysts, and tumors.
