Abstract

The value of time intensity analysis of renal enhancement curve at harmonic power Doppler imaging in predicting the presence of significant renal artery stenosis (RAS) was assessed. Twenty patients with clinical suspicion of renovascular hypertension were enrolled in a pilot clinical study. Angiographic studies revealed renal artery occlusion in the kidneys. Analysis of time intensity renal enhancement curves showed that area under the curve and maximum peak concentration were significantly greater in kidneys with significant RAS than in kidneys with nonsignificant RAS or normal arteries.
