Renal Lesions

Renal Lesions

Owing to the widespread use of CT and ultrasound many patients are often diagnosed with renal masses. These are often small and may not require any treatment but cause a great deal of anxiety. Treatment is tailored to the patient and includes laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, radio frequency ablation and observation.

If referring a patient with a renal mass or complex cyst or other lesion for evaluation the most useful test to perform is a CT renal 3 phase. This will provide non contrast, arterial, portal venous as well as delayed images.
