[Contribution of imaging techniques in acute neonatal renal pathology]

Ann Pediatr (Paris). 1993 Feb;40(2):63-9.
[Article in French]


Ultrasound is the first imaging modality used to evaluate acute renal disease in neonates. Normal findings and abnormalities seen in venous or arterial thrombosis, hemodynamic shock, or sepsis are reviewed. Transient changes due to intoxications, tubular disorders, or congenital nephrotic syndrome are considerably less common.
