Profile of patients subjected for intravenous urography
Dr. Dayanandaswamy and Dr. Jyoti Aggarwal
In the evaluation of acute flank pain, ultrasonography (US) is limited primarily to pregnant patients. While US demonstrates renal calculi, it is poor at detecting ureteral stones. Doppler sonography has been suggested as a method of indirectly determining obstruction by measuring the resistive index in renal arteries and evaluating the direction and magnitude of ureteral jets. 100 patients of symptoms of unilateral acute renal colic are subjected to Doppler evaluation of control and case kidney and the RI of both kidneys were obtained and delta RI was calculated by difference in RI of case and control kidney. Of 100 patients, 77 were men and 23 were women. The mean age (in years) in men is 31.36 ± 11.23 (17-61) was lower as compared to women 32.69 ± 12.55 (17-65). This difference was not statistically significant (p value 0.6502).
