Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine whether three- dimensional reconstruction with stereoscopic display of helical CT data sets and CT angiography are useful in the examination of patients with known or suspected renal masses. CONCLUSION: Volume-rendering techniques applied to helical CT data sets coupled with three-dimensional stereoscopic imaging provide a complete examination of patients with known or suspected renal masses. Such information can help guide patient treatment and provide a single preoperative study when nephron-sparing surgery or total nephrectomy is considered.
