Accuracy of renal ultrasound measurements for predicting actual kidney size.

Abstract

PURPOSE We attempted to evaluate the accuracy of renal ultrasound measurements for determining actual kidney size in a growing renal unit. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated 18 renal units in growing piglets weekly for 11 weeks on ultrasound. Measured parameters included length, transverse and anteroposterior dimensions, and volume. At 11 weeks final… (More)
