Description

Renal volume, but not renal length, has been shown to be positively correlated with renal function. Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are two modalities used to assess renal volume. The aim of our study was to determine whether 3D ultrasound measurements of renal volume in the neonate are comparable to those of MRI measurements. Preterm and term neonates had an MRI and 3D ultrasound to determine renal volume at the same time as they had an MRI brain scan for...[Show more]
