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.

Late venous confluence of left renal vein in 27-year-old male voluntary kidney donor. Curved coronal maximum intensity projection (A) and anterior oblique volume rendered (B) images show late venous confluence of left renal vein (thick white arrows). Maximum intensity projection image also shows two renal veins on right side (thin arrow). Left adrenal gland and adrenal vein are also nicely seen.
