Abstract

The kidneys can harbor a wide variety of lesions, many of which can be visualized by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In this article, the pertinent renal anatomic relationships as well as the histologic composition and function of the renal medulla and sinus are reviewed. Additionally, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging features of renal sinus and medullary lesions in adult patients are presented. This article reviews the salient imaging features of various malignant, benign neoplastic, and nonneoplastic lesions of the sinus and medulla.
