Images of Ultrasonography or Abdominal Computed Tomography Scanning in Cases of Malignant Kidney Tumors
Keywords:Malignant Kidney Tumor, Ultrasonography, Abdominal CT Scan
Background: The malignant kidney tumor is a urinary tract tumor with the highest mortality and morbidity
compared to other urinary tract tumors. The role of USG radiology and CT scan is essential for diagnosing
malignant kidney tumors.
Objective: To examine the diagnostic value of USG radiology and CT scan in diagnosing malignancy of
kidney tumor and its accuracy in assessing renal tumor operability.
Methods: This study was a retrospective observational study using secondary data of radiological
examination including ultrasonography, CT scan and other postoperative results derived from medical
records. Data analysis was conducted descriptively.
Results: The sensitivity score of USG, CT scan, and USG and CT scan was 60%, 82%, and 83% respectively.
Sensitivity value of ultrasound examination was 60% and CT Scan was 82%. The incompatibility of
ultrasound with pathology results was found in the case of hydronephrosis with the stone of 64%, stone of
18%, cyst of 18 %, on CT Scan hydronephrosis with stone (83%) Pyelonephritis (17%). The incompatibility
of USG and CT Scan with operating results was 8%.
Conclusion: Incompatibility of USG results with anatomic pathology results was found in cases of
hydronephrosis accompanied by stones, kidney stones, and benign lesions (cysts). Incompatibility of CT
Scan results with anatomic pathology results was found in cases of hydronephrosis accompanied by stone
