Abstract

Ultrasonography, computed tomography and excretory urography in 25 patients with renal cell carcinoma were reviewed to determine their accuracy in predicting tumor stage. Staging was correct with ultrasonography in 60% of the patients, with computed tomography in 68% and with excretory urography in 40%. There was one patient, in which tumor was not identified on excretory urography. From these results, ultrasonography appears to be a good procedure as computed tomography to evaluate the stage of renal cell carcinomas.
