Abstract

On the basis of a series of 25 cases of closed recent trauma of the kidney examined by scanner, the authors analyzed the information provided by the method and its correspondence with the various lesions encountered. In the course of this study, the scanner appeared to be the method of investigation which, at the present time, offers the best information concerning the severity of parenchymatous damage, as well as the size, nature and course of the perirenal blood or urine collections. Such data being fundamental to therapeutic decisions, the place of the scanner is essential in the evaluation of renal trauma, and, in severe forms, should be performed immediately after the irreplaceable I.V. urography performed as an emergency.
