Case Discussion

CT multiphase protocol study for suspected of renal lesions includes a phase without contrast, an arterial phase to value vascular lesions, a nephrographic phase to assess the parenchyma and a late phase to assess and urinary tract. CT whole body multiphases protocol with bolus tracking allows assess thrombosis of the renal artery during  the arterial phase as defect of enhancement of renal artery and the absence of nephorographic effect  during the neproghraphic phase at 70s.
