Imaging of Renovascular Disease

Academic Article


  • A variety of different imaging techniques have been used for the diagnosis of renal vascular diseases. The wide range of renal vascular diseases include congenital renal artery and vein variations, aneurysms, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), renal artery stenosis, renal vein thrombosis, vasculitis, and traumatic injuries, such as dissection and vascular pedicle injury. In this article, we discuss the role of invasive and noninvasive imaging in each of these abnormalities and their typical features. Because renal artery stenosis is an important vascular abnormality encountered in clinical practice, imaging of this entity will be emphasized.
