Noninvasive imaging of the renal arteries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Currently, four screening/diagnostic studies are available that provide imaging of the renal arteries: duplex ultrasonography, CT angiography, MR angiography, and intravenous DSA. Intravenous DSA is no longer used because of better imaging with MR and CT angiography. MR angiography, CT angiography, and duplex ultrasonography provide excellent sensitivity and specificity when performed by experienced personnel. The screening test of choice depends on the availability, expertise, and cost at individual centers.
