Renal cyst puncture with aspiration of cyst fluid and subsequent instillation of contrast material is best accomplished using simultaneous fluoroscopy and A-mode ultrasonography with a special ultrasonic aspiration biopsy transducer. Fluoroscopy is best for localizing the cyst and monitoring the instillation of contrast material, while A-mode ultrasound is ideal for placement of the tip of the aspirating needle.
