Abstract

In this paper, we describe our clinical evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of the renal mass diagnostic system (RMDS) and of seven physicians. To investigate the value of intravenous urography (IVU) and/or retrograde urography (RU) in diagnosing renal parenchymal tumors and tumors of the renal pelvis, RMDS and the seven physicians were tested with and without the information regarding IVU/RU at two different times. From this study we believe that RMDS can help residents in making more accurate presurgical renal mass diagnosis, and may eliminate the need for IVU/RU in the diagnosing process for a specific group of patients.
