I would like to know if US Color Doppler is a good exam to check small renal masses. I did a US Doppler and the Doctor said I have a single lobulation, anatomic variance on my left kidney, without evidense of lesion, normal vascularity and kidney function. The Doctor is Fellow in Vascular US at Hospital John Radcliffe / Oxford University/UK.
Yes it is a good exam to check for small renal masses, and what the Doctor said makes sense to me. If the Doctor didn't suggest a follow up scan, that suggests that he thought this was a normal variant of anatomy.
