The Role of Renal Ultrasound in Children With Febrile Urinary Tract Infection
This study was designed to examine the capability of renal ultrasonography (US) for predicting vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) and renal scarring (RS), and to assess, using initial US, the significant urologic abnormalities that impact on management of children hospitalized with the first febrile urinary tract infection (UTI). Hospitalized children aged ≤ 2 years with the first febrile UTI were prospectively evaluated using imaging studies, including 99mTc dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scan, US, and voiding cystourethrography.
