Most renal masses are diagnosed incidentally by imaging. Traditionally, conventional studies, in example ultrasonography (US), contrast enhanced computed tomography (ceCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are employed for detecting and characterizing renal masses. International guidelines recommend the use of ceCT in order to asses the tumour extension, including the widespread of disease in the local and distant lymph nodes, the assessment of the surrounding and distant organs and the function of the contralateral kidney.
