Abstract

Because the kidneys are bilateral and movable organs which often show abnormalities in their blood vessels, urine passways and parenchymatous components, and because changes in position of the patient may cause changes in the positional relations of those systems, it follows that simultaneous bilateral renal arteriography by use of the aortographic technique is preferable to the routine selective renal arteriography and that a devise should be made of taking pictures for comparison of the patient both in the standing and in the supine position. It is demonstrated in this paper that in applying such an improved technique to 33 cases of movable kidneys the movement of the kidneys is accompanied with positional changes in their blood vessels and urine passways and, in some cases, with changes in their shapes.
