Acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) imaging is a promising method for noninvasive evaluation of the renal parenchyma. To investigate the contribution of ARFI quantitative US elastography for the detection of renal damage in kidneys with and without vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). One hundred seventy-six kidneys of 88 children (46 male, 42 female) who had been referred for voiding cystourethrography and 20 healthy controls were prospectively investigated. Patients were assessed according to… CONTINUE READING
