AAST grade IV kidney injury with CEUS follow-up


AAST grade IV kidney injury and splenic rupture with large amount of blood in the pelvis. Patient was stable during hospitalizations; conservative therapy was applied.

3 months later a follow-up CT scan was requested to assess the left kidney morphology and possible remnants of the left kidney injury. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound study was performed given the patient's age in order to avoid unnecessary radiation (according to the ALARA principle).
