Objectives: Our study is finalized to assess the role of Sonography and MDCT in the diagnostic work-up of patients with complicated Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD).
Methods: Thirty-five patients with ADPKD underwent Sonography, un-enhanced and contrast-enhancement MDCT for flank pain, haematuria and fever. Sonographic evaluation was made with patients in the supine position, full bladder, by making the patient with deep inalations, and other bedsores were used (side, prone) using other types of acoustic windows. MDCT studies were performed with volumetric acquisition technique (un-enhanced and contrast enhancement), and the relative images were evaluated at the appropriate work-station using MPR, cMIP, MIP thin and thick, and Volume endering (VRT) reconstructions. Two different Radiologists, with experience in genitourinary imaging, analysed image quality.
