Normal feline kidney
From Chapter 10 – Kidneys & Ureters
Figure 10.3. Normal feline kidney. Longitudinal (A) and transverse (B) images of the left kidney in a normal cat. The renal cortex is more echogenic than the medulla, but isoechoic when compared to the superficial spleen (S). The renal crest may be more echoic as in this cat. The renal pelvic is surrounded by the hyperechoic sinus. Arcuate vessels (arrowheads) appear as short parallel hyperechoic lines at the corticomedullary junction.
