OBJECTIVE The aim of this prospective study is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of multidetector-row computed tomography (CT) compared to histopathologic findings in tumor staging of renal cell carcinoma, with the focus on tumor stage, vein and artery infiltration, and infiltration of the renal pelvis. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective study, a total of 76 consecutive patients with suspected renal cell carcinoma were preoperatively assessed for tumor staging using multidetector-row… CONTINUE READING
