OBJECTIVE The objectives of this study were to evaluate the incidence of solid renal cell carcinoma (RCC) with attenuation similar to that of water (-10 to 20 HU) on unenhanced CT and to examine imaging features that can allow RCC to be differentiated from simple cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed an enriched quantitative and qualitative retrospective analysis of consecutive patients who underwent unenhanced CT before resection of solid (noncystic and nonnecrotic) renal masses… CONTINUE READING
