Technical considerations in renal CT

Academic Article


  • CT is a robust, rapid means of evaluation for a wide spectrum of urologic disorders. The evaluation of renal trauma, urologic malignancy, urolithiasis, and vascular anatomy is well suited to CT techniques. Subtle adjustments in the technical parameters and timing of the study, however, can optimize the evaluation based on the clinical setting. As CT is more widely used, often repeatedly on an individual patient, radiation exposure must be minimized while still obtaining diagnostic image quality.
