Kidney cyst is a common disease in our lives, and many friends don't know what tests should be done to determine if they have the disease. Below we will introduce the kidney cyst examination items content.
Basic examination of renal cyst
(1)Intravenous pyelography (IVP): it shows the extent to which the cyst compacts the renal parenchyma and can be distinguished from hydronephrosis.
(2) Routine urine examination: if the cyst is found to be pressing the renal parenchyma or is associated with an intra-capsular infection, a small amount of white blood cells and red blood cells may appear in the urine.
(3) B ultrasound: the size of cyst, the condition of cyst wall and the number of cysts can be obtained by B ultrasonic examination. It can also be distinguished from renal parenchymal mass, which is the first method of examination. The typical B-mode ultrasound is mainly characterized by smooth cystic wall and clear boundary, no echo in the lesion area. When there are household rules or localized echo enhancement in the cystic wall, we should be on guard against malignant changes. When there is secondary infection, the cyst wall will become thicker, the lesion area will have fine echo, and there will be bleeding in the capsule. Echo will be enhanced. When imaging indicates multiple cysts, they should be distinguished from polycystic kidneys and atrial cysts.
