Patient
female, 33 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Ultrasonography of the left kidney

    Ultrasonography of the left kidney shows hyperechogenicity of the upper renal pole and loss of corticomedullary demarcation.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Ultrasonography of the left kidney;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Duplex ultrasonography

    Duplex ultrasonography of the left renal upper pole demonstrates increased resistive indices in the upper pole (> 80% vs < 70% in the lower pole and in the right kidney).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Duplex ultrasonography;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Contrast enhanced CT of the abdomen

    Contrast enhanced CT of the abdomen visualized a filling defect in the renal vein and diminished enhancement of the posterior aspect of the left kidney.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Contrast enhanced CT of the abdomen;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Duplex ultrasonography of the left kidney after therapy

    Duplex ultrasonography of the left renal upper pole shows normalization of the intrarenal arterial flow after successful thrombolytic treatment.
