Abstract

Objectives: In living renal donors, digital subtraction angiography and intravenous pyelogram techniques developing traditional evaluation before transplant have started to give place to more modern and lessinvasive methods such as multidetector computerized tomography angiography, and magnetic resonance angiography via the developments in the imaging technology. We aimed to evaluate the renal arteries of living-renal donors by multidetector computerized tomography angiography and to compare the findings with the surgical results.
