Renal ultrasound allows an examination of the provisions of the kidneys and their shapes, and analyze the correlation of cerebral cortex body to detect anatomical defects (cysts) and tumors (benign and malignant tumors), to identify the particular location of the vessels and the presence of additional inclusions (sand and stones). Simultaneously the study of organs and tissues that surround the kidney, largely because of kidney disease is not caused by disorders of the paired organs in general, but also the fat capsule, renal pelvis, ureter, urinary bladder.
Ultrasonography can be done at almost any time of the day, but for better visualization of urine formation and urinary need adequate preparation of the patient. It is desirable to remove the excess amount of free gas in the bowel loops - ultrasound does not apply in a gaseous medium, so it is advisable appointment enema the night before the procedure. It is also desirable to use adsorbents at night - a conventional activated carbon or sorbeksa. In the morning before the study, it is desirable to refrain from eating or permitted without light breakfast foods that cause flatulence (fresh milk, eggs, flour products, and some cereals).
But the urgent need for implementation of the study, these rules may be waived - in this case, questioned the possibility of re-execution of renal ultrasound.
