Abstract

Introduction: Kidney volume (KV) is an important parameter for clinical assessment of patients with diabetes or renal artery stenosis and for assessment of kidney transplant candidates. The purpose of this study was to compare KV estimations obtained by using the Cavalieri principle combined with point-counting and planimetry techniques. In addition, we evaluated the results to construct a confidence interval value for KV according to a new approach.
