Final Pr. ID: Poster #: EDU-050

Teaching Points
1. Review normal renal anatomy and normal renal and urinary imaging findings in the pediatric population.
2. Discuss the imaging characteristics of the different causes of congenital pediatric renal and urinary disorders, predominantly utilizing ultrasonography and fluoroscopy.
3. Learn the epidemiology, appropriate workup, and management of congenital pediatric renal and urinary disorders.

There is a large spectrum of frequently encountered congenital renal and urinary disorders, ranging from incidental findings to severe, life-threatening pathologies. Recognizing the multi-modality imaging characteristics of these anomalies is an important tool in any radiologists’ arsenal. The purpose of this presentation is to perform a case-based imaging review of congenital renal and urinary disorders and discuss their etiologies and clinical importance. After completing this educational exhibit, the reader will be able to recognize the various causes and imaging features of congenital pediatric renal disorders. The following topics will be discussed:
Vesicoureteral reflux
Autosomal recessive polycystic disease (ARPKD)
Autosomal dominant polycystic disease (ADPKD)
Renal anomalies - agenesis/ectopia/horseshoe/duplicated
UPJ obstruction
Posterior urethral valves
Multicystic dysplastic kidney
Mesoblastic nephroma
