Renal Ultrasound

Renal ultrasound is also known as kidney ultrasound.

This study employs sound waves to image internal structures. The study painless and requires essentially no preparation. Using renal ultrasound, details of kidney anatomy can be seen. Some ultrasound machines have special software and probes that will allow evaluation of blood flow in the kidney and surrounding structures.  Tumors, stones, cysts, and congential anomolies can be evaluated with renal ultrasound.  Additionally the adrenal glands can be seen with this study. Urologists often obtain renal ultrasounds to evaluate patients with renal stones, renal cysts, renal tumors hematuria, flank pain, hematuria, recurrent infections, hydronephrosis, and neurogenic bladder.
