Evaluation and management of kidney lesions: comparison of 16-MDCT and magnetic resonance imaging
AbstractWe evaluated the diagnostic performance of 16-MDCT and MRI in the characterization of kidney lesions and noted, the differences between these two methods. We describe the most common lesions of kidney and urinary tract examined with MDCT performed in the unenhanced, arterial, and portal venous phases, and MRI performed at 1.5 T with T2- and T1-weighted and dynamic gadolinium- enhanced sequences. All lesions had histologic findings that confirmed the primary diagnosis. Both MDCT and MRI are excellent methods to characterize benign and malignant renal lesions.
