Abstract

The methods of quantitative ultrasonic imaging to study polycystic kidney disease (PKD) as the disease progresses to renal failure is presented. The objective is to use ultrasound noninvasively to detect morphological changes early in the disease process when interventions are most likely to be successful and prior to a significant loss in renal function. Kidneys of normal rats with PKD at various ages were used.
