Abstract

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) has been proved to be a useful imaging modality to characterize complex renal cysts using the Bosniak classification in a similar way as Computed Tomography (CT). CEUS helps not only in the characterization of complex cysts detected on baseline US but also in the characterization of indeterminate cystic lesions on CT or Magnetic Resonance (MR).
