Recent Developments in Medical Imaging

The emergence of imaging techniques replaced the use of radiography in diagnosing disease conditions of the kidney . The new diagnostic imaging techniques such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging MRI , Ultrasonography , and Computed Tomography (CT scan ) has been increasingly used in kidney disease diagnosis due to it 's non- invasiveness . The morphological information provided by these modalities can

not be neglected . Along with the advantages of the new imaging techniques though are the disadvantages thus analysis of the capabilities of the diagnostic imaging to be used as well as the significant researches that tested these image modalities needs to be considered before utilization of these techniques

The limitations of the other imaging modalities such as ionizing radiation , risks of nephrotoxicity in patients due to contrast medium that are nephrotoxic , and tissue differentiation that is of low quality are overcome by the Magnetic Resonance Imaging techniques . Thru the use of MRI the patient is not subjected to ionizing radiation or nephrotoxic contrast agents as well as minimal invasiveness are gained by this diagnostic imaging modality ADDIN EN .CITE Perry20031 1117Perry , Kent T .

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI ) is increasingly utilized as a diagnostic imaging technique in evaluating chronic diseases of the kidney and Acute Renal Failure (ARF ) because the technique makes possible the evaluation of the anatomy and function of this organ . MRI nowadays already permits ultrashort acquisition times thus the restriction of the use in MRI for ARF and chronic kidney diseases is already erased ADDIN EN .CITE Laissy7 Laissy , Jean-Pierre Idye , Jean-Marc Fernandez , Pedro Floquet Muriel Vrtovsnik , Franzois and Schouman-Claeys , Elisabeth Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Acute and Chronic Kidney Diseases : Present StatusNephron Clincal PracticeNephron Clincal Practice (Laissy , 2006 .

Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA , a new technique that is developed with the principles of MRI has a significant value in monitoring transplanted kidneys (Clerbaux 2003 . The assessment of renal artery aneurysm , renal artery stenosis , and evaluation of the kidneys of donors in kidney transplants are recommended applications of MRA ADDIN EN .CITE Perry20031 1117Perry , Kent T .
