Computed-Body-Tomography of Renal Carcinoma and Perirenal Masses

In the last 10 years the concept of detection of renal tumors has been completely renovated. Before then i.v. urography, and renal angiography developed by Seldinger, Olsson, and Boijsen were the main diagnostic tools. The introduction of ultrasound and CT has entirely changed all diagnostic procedures and devices. In addition magnetic resonance imaging (MR) enriches the spectrum of diagnostic possibilities. For this reason a special chapter is dedicated to the diagnosis of the kidney and adrenals by magnetic resonance (MR).
