Centrally Infiltrating Renal Masses on CT: Differentiating Intrarenal Transitional Cell Carcinoma From Centrally Located Renal Cell Carcinoma

American Journal of Roentgenology, 03/30/2012

Intrarenal transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) can be recognized with a high accuracy on CT; global impression showed the best diagnostic performance. A solid, homogeneously enhancing mass that is centered on the collecting system and extends toward the ureteropelvic junction combined with a focal pelvicalyceal filling defect and preserved renal outline is more likely to be an intrarenal TCC than a centrally located renal cell carcinoma (RCC).
