Ultrasound assessment of the urinary tract is frequently undertaken to identify post-renal or obstructive causes of renal failure. This chapter describes the normal renal sonoanatomy and the technique for scanning the renal tract, including the bladder. The sonographic features of the common pathology that may be identified are described, including the classification of hydronephrosis. The advanced section introduces the role of ultrasound in assessing renal perfusion.
