TO APPRECIATE THE ROLE OF DIFFUSION WEIGHTED MR IMAGING IN IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF RENAL MASSES
Keywords:diffusion, renal masses & MR imaging.
Background & Method: This prospective study was done in the Department of Radio diagnosis & Govt. Medical College, Nagpur. A total of 70 patients who were referred to our department with strong clinical suspicion of renal lesion and those diagnosed by ultrasonography. Magnetic Resonance Imaging evaluation of abdomen using MRI Scanner after obtaining informed consent.
Result: Majority of patients in our study group belonged to age group of 50-59 years (37.3%) with mean age of 52.3 years. RCC formed the most common malignant lesion in the kidney and the most common lesion in the study is 25.
Nodal involvement was the commonest associated finding that was identified.
Conclusion: Majority of patients in our study group belonged to the age group 50-59 years (37.3%) with a mean age of 52.3 years. RCC was the most common malignant lesion in our study constituting the renal lesions. Clear cell RCC was the most common histological subtype in our study.
