Experimental: ARFI-SVI Ultrasound
Ultrasound scan using acoustic radiation force impulse-shear wave velocity imaging in the characterization of pediatric hydronephrosis. This is a non-invasive scan that uses sound waves to create the images.
Procedure: AFRI-SVI Ultrasound
This research scan uses acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) shear wave velocity imaging (SVI)a new ultrasound technology in which unique sound waves create the images/pictures of the kidney beng examined/scanned. This ultrasound scan will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.
- ARFI-SVI [ Time Frame: 6 months ]fibrosis and intratubular pressure will be evidenced by higher parenchymal shear wave velocity measurements using the ARFI-SVI technology.
