Sonographic renal parameters as related to age
- 37 Downloads
Four hundred and fifty-four kidneys were evaluated by real time ultrasound for appearance of renal cortical echogenecity, medullary pyramids and central sinus echoes. These renal parameters were correlated with age in 227 patients ranging in age from 0–15 years. The renal parenchymal echogenicity was observed to change not abruptly at a certain age but gradually over a period of years.
