OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to retrospectively assess whether measurement of quantitative enhancement during three-phase MDCT can help differentiate clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC) from papillary RCC, chromophobe RCC, and fat-poor angiomyolipoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS During preoperative three-phase MDCT (unenhanced, corticomedullary, and early excretory phases), 563 lesions were identified in 552 consecutively registered patients. The lesions were assessed for attenuation… CONTINUE READING
