CT Scan of the Kidney.

A computed tomography scan (CT scan) is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging test that simultaneously utilises X-rays and computer technology to generate “slices” or cross-sectional images of any part of the body, including internal organs such as the kidneys and related “renal tract” structures.

Unlike standard X-rays, CT scans provide more detailed information and greater clarity in their produced diagnostic images, assisting your healthcare provider in identifying diseases or injuries of the kidneys and renal tract more accurately.

Why Do You Need a Kidney CT Scan?

When an X-ray or other physical examination is not conclusive, you may be referred for a kidney or renal CT scan to detect and evaluate certain conditions of the renal tract system.

CT scan of the kidneys and renal tract may therefore be performed to assess for conditions such as stones, obstruction, infection, inflammation, tumours and other masses, as well as cysts, and congenital abnormalities.
