I know there is a ultra sound and a doppler ultra sound for renal artery. I'm wondering online I alway see hilux and cortex test results for a kidney test, but shouldn't there be a renal artery test as well on the blood flow through that artery? I want to get a test done. trying to find a family doctor to refer me.
Once a diagnosis of renal artery disease is suspected, a diagnostic test is generally ordered to evaluate the renal arteries for the presence of significantly narrowed areas. Tests that can be used to diagnose renal artery stenosis include abdominal duplex ultrasound, magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), computed tomography (CTA), or nuclear medicine testing (captopril renal scanning). In some cases, an invasive angiogram may be recommended to evaluate the renal arteries.
Your doctor will decide which test/s are best for you.
