Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The multimodality approach to treating both localized and metastatic renal cell carcinoma has led to a demand for improved imaging evaluation. We review the information needed from the radiologic studies used to determine treatment strategies.

CONCLUSION:

Adequate preoperative radiologic assessment provides the treating physician with information critical in determining the sequence of treatments, role of nephron-sparing surgery, surgical approach, and timing of systemic therapy for metastatic disease.
