Objective. To evaluate whether the diameter of the main renal artery is an indicator of the presence of an accessory renal artery in sonographic examination. Methods. Of cases undergoing renal intra‐arterial digital subtraction angiography for any reason, those with no renal arterial disease detected on digital subtraction angiography were included in the investigation. Accessory renal arteries were disclosed by digital subtraction angiographic examinations. The dimensions of the kidney were… 
Can renal dimensions and the main renal artery diameter indicate the presence of an accessory renal artery? A 64-slice CT study.
TLDR
Whether renal dimensions and the main renal artery (mRA) diameter can provide indirect evidence of the presence or absence of accessory renal arteries (aRA) and the results of the formula developed herein employing the mRA diameter and kidney length can respectively predict the presence of an aRA with high accuracy are evaluated.
Renal-aortic ratio as an objective measure of renal artery diameter a computed tomography angiography study
TLDR
The analysis of the renal-aortic ratio values demonstrated that the diameter of renal arteries depended primarily on their number, and the relative diameter of kidney arteries in women was larger than in men.
Study of Main Renal Artery Diameter and Its Correlation with Presence of Accessory Renal Artery on Cadaveric Dissection
TLDR
Multiple renal vascular variations are present in screening of normal patients and a sound knowledge of possible variations is very useful for radiologists, urologists and surgeons in general which prompted this study.
Renal vascular morphology and their significance in predicting accessories
TLDR
The diameter of the main/principle renal artery in kidney presenting the accessory renal arteries was significantly less than that of the kidney with single renal artery.
Does the type of renal artery anatomic variant determine the diameter of the main vessel supplying a kidney? A study based on CT data with a particular focus on the presence of multiple renal arteries
TLDR
The classification described in this study containing a detailed description of renal artery diameter may be helpful in clinical practice, especially for transplantologists, surgeons, and vascular surgeons.
Renal Volumetry-based Prediction of the Presence of Accessory Renal Artery: Computed Tomographic Angiography-based Study with Clinical Implications on Renal Doppler
TLDR
Renal volumetry on CT angiography may help predict the presence of accessory renal artery and thus may have implications on renal Doppler studies, and the use of integrated volumetric parameter (V/d) is likely to play a key role on imaging studies.
A study of evaluation of renal artery measurements using computed tomography angiography in adult Aswanian population
TLDR
The renal arteries present a broad spectrum of variability in their morphological expression respecting their length, level of ramification, diameter and emergence.
Aging and the average diameter of the renal artery using computed tomography angiography (CTA)
TLDR
The transverse diameter of the renal artery may be dependent on subject’s age but not gender in subjects with no renovascular disease using multi-detector computerized angiography tomography images.
The analysis of renal artery cross-section area and kidney volume in CT-angiography.
TLDR
The cross-section area of renal arteries correlated positively with kidney volume in both sexes and presence of ARAs do not influence the sum of cross- section areas of renal artery.

TLDR
The authors conclude that with current technical capability, color duplex US is not an adequate screening method for the detection of RAS.

TLDR
Intrarenal colour Doppler ultrasound is not a general screening test for RAS and it should be reserved for selected patient groups where the incidence of disease is high.

TLDR
Duplex-scan is accurate for diagnosis of renal artery stenosis in a selected population of patients and compared with venous angiography and intra-arterial arteriography with good sensitivity and specificity.

TLDR
Duplex scanning with current technology is unlikely to prove satisfactory for screening patients with hypertension for renal artery stenosis, and the published velocity threshold of 100 cm/sec is too low.
Detection of Accessory Renal Arteries with Virtual Vascular Endoscopy of the Aorta
TLDR
VVE based on surface rendering does not add substantial benefits to CTY angiography; by contrast MIP is the most accurate display technique for the detection of accessory renal arteries.

TLDR
G gadolinium-enhanced MR angiography is an accurate minimally invasive method for the detection of accessory renal arteries in the preoperative evaluation of potential renal donors and has superiority in detecting venous anomalies, renal cysts, and tumors.
