Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


With recent advances in ultrasound technology, concomitant improvement in sonographic techniques have been required. Sonographic scanning in coronal orientation, both in transverse but especially in longitudinal direction, has demonstrated a number of advantages over the routine transverse and sagittal scans. Closer correlation with functional anatomy of the kidney, more comprehensive scanning with less interference from adjacent tissues, and better understanding by the clinician are the most obvious advantages of the coronal approach.
