A Survey of Different Imaging Modalities for Renal Cancer


Objectives: Renal cancer is among the ten most common forms of cancer and in this article we explored and compared the abilities of different renal imaging modalities in the diagnosis of renal carcinoma. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The visual appearance of various abnormalities have been observed and analyzed on different imaging modalities as different kinds of tumors appears differently in images. Findings: In this study, the capabilities of the various renal imaging modalities have been discussed which are presently used in clinical setups. It can be observed from analysis and discussion that no solitary technique is fully worthwhile in all areas of controlling renal cancer. Hence, research is constantly going on to upgrade the existing modalities and develop new imaging techniques based on the chemical, physical and biological characteristics of malignant tissue that distinguishes it from normal benign tissues. At present, innovations in modality development are headed to imaging at the molecular level which helps to understand the growth of cancer that in turn will suggest us to find the possible cure for this disease. Application/Improvements: This can help the beginners to understand which modality should be preferred for diagnosis of different kinds of diseases as different imaging technique is used to visualize distinct abnormalities
