Abstract

MRI of the kidney and urinary tract has evolved with advancements in MR technology combined with further radiologic experience. A combination of simple pulse sequences and the use of gadolinium (Gd) allow a comprehensive evaluation of the genitourinary system and facilitate the detection and accurate characterization of renal and urinary tract masses. In this review an MRI technique used to evaluate the kidneys and urinary tract is presented with an emphasis on the characterization of renal masses.
