    Ultrasound
     

    Transverse (a) and longitudinal (b) ultrasound images demonstrate a solid right renal mass, measuring around 5 cm in diameter, in the superior pole of the right kidney.

    Renal CT examination
     

    Axial and coronal CT images show a spontaneously (a) heterogeneous kidney mass with central areas of low attenuation. After contrast administration in corticomedullary (b,d) and nephrographic (c,e) phases the lesion...

    Renal CT examination (after surgery)
     

    Axial (a) and coronal (b) renal CT examination images after contrast administration (corticomedullary phase) show changes in the right kidney from the partial nephrectomy. No signs of tumour recurrence were found.

    Axial (a,c) and sagittal (b) CT examination images demonstrate the presence of material with negative densities (-85 HU) located above the dependent fluid in the bladder, suggesting macroscopic fat.
