Abstract

Helical CT provides an accurate tool in the diagnosis and detection of renal disease. A major advantage of renal helical CT is the ability to obtain a volumetric dataset during optimal vascular and parenchymal enhancement. In addition, multiplanar display improves demonstration of key anatomic relationships and clarifies complex pathology. In this essay, we demonstrate the advantages of multiplanar display in evaluation of the kidney.
