The utility of 64 channel multidetector CT angiography for evaluating the renal vascular anatomy and possible variations: a pictorial essay.

Kumar S, Neyaz Z, Gupta A - Korean J Radiol (2010)

Bottom Line: The increased use of laparoscopic nephrectomy and nephron-sparing surgery has prompted the need for a more detailed radiological evaluation of the renal vascular anatomy.Multidetector CT angiography is a fast and accurate modality for assessing the precise anatomy of the renal vessels.In this pictorial review, we present the multidetector CT angiography appearances of the normal renal vascular anatomy and a spectrum of various anomalies that require accurate vascular depiction before undergoing surgical treatment.

ABSTRACT
The increased use of laparoscopic nephrectomy and nephron-sparing surgery has prompted the need for a more detailed radiological evaluation of the renal vascular anatomy. Multidetector CT angiography is a fast and accurate modality for assessing the precise anatomy of the renal vessels. In this pictorial review, we present the multidetector CT angiography appearances of the normal renal vascular anatomy and a spectrum of various anomalies that require accurate vascular depiction before undergoing surgical treatment.

Figure 7: Incidental renal artery aneurysm in 66-year-old male voluntary kidney donor. Oblique coronal maximum intensity projection image shows small aneurysm in segmental renal artery on right side (arrow).

Mentions: Apart from the variations for the number of arteries and the branching pattern, structural arterial abnormalities like renal artery stenosis, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations, dissection, thrombosis and fibromuscular dysplasia can be accurately depicted on MDCT angiography (6) (Figs. 6, 7).
