The kidneys are known to be well-perfused organs, and various renal vascular diseases are routinely diagnosed from results of color Doppler ultrasound (US) examination. Modern US machines can use Color and power Doppler US and B-Flow techniques to delineate both the main renal vessels and the intraparenchymal vasculature of the kidney in great detail. Doppler US can use spectral analysis to evaluate such flow characteristics as flow direction and velocity, and parenchymal flow resistance. This presentation covers both the usefulness of color and power Doppler US in diagnosing an array of renal vascular diseases and its application in assessing renal transplants.
