abstract

  • Small PL-ROIs had higher accuracy than WL-ROI or other PL-ROIs in separating RCC from cysts, with greater impact in differentiating pRCC from cysts and differentiating lesions without visible enhancement. Thus, when evaluating renal lesions using multi-phase CT, we suggest placing small peripheral ROIs for highest accuracy in distinguishing renal malignancy and benign cysts.
