Before contrast medium is injected, a preliminary nephrotomogram is obtained to determine renal location for a series of tomograms obtained 1 to 3 minutes after administration of bolus contrast material.
Various studies have proposed several measurements to estimate the ideal depth for the initial nephrotomogram,[1-8] including:
In our study, this formula would have failed to intersect one or both kidneys at the midplane on the initial nephrotomogram in 31% of the cases.
33 is in fact the optimal ratio for the height of the initial nephrotomogram.
In a comparison for different modalities, residual fragments were detected by CT in 53%, by plain film in 44%, by nephrotomograms in 42% and by sonography in 28%.
