Abstract

Localization. A mass within the perirenal space originates either in one of the organs of this region or from non-visceral soft tissue, as listed in Table 1. A basic diagnostic task, then, is to determine whether the origin of the tumor is visceral or non-visceral by using the nephrogram, fat planes, the “beak” sign or vascular supply to the tumor as tools for localization.
