IMAGE INTERPRETATION AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL VOLUME RENDERING RADIOLOGICAL GUIDANCE DURING LAPAROSCOPIC SURGERY POSTOPERATIVE IMAGING SUMMARY CONCLUSION REFERENCES

The laparoscopic urologist must have an accurate understanding of the renal parenchymal and vascular anatomy and tumor location to preserve normal renal tissue and thus preserve renal function.

Accurate surgical planning information helps to minimize postoperative complications, such as urinary leak or renal infarct, and to maximize preserved renal parenchyma.
