Fig 21.14 Malignant tumor of lower pole of the left kidney - clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC)
Fig 21.15 Clear cell renal cell carcinoma (RCC). In larger tumors, there are larger inhomogeneities in the B-scan. Pseudo cystic or necrotic areas are very clearly visible in CEUS (unenhancing areas)
Fig 21.16 Chromophobic renal cell carcinomas (CRCC) are difficult to distinguish from oncocytomas. They are homogeneous, isoechogenic and they also behave similarly at CEUS
Fig 21.17 Papillary renal cell carcinomas (PRCC) are mostly homogeneous and hypoechoic; in CEUS (left panel, arrows) they are weakly perfused
Fig 21.18 Hemangiosarcoma is a very rare tumor, here observed in a kidney transplant

Fig 21.32a Normal testicular sono-anatomy on longitudinal view, shows normal homogenous echogenicity throughout, with exception of peripherally located hyperechoic mediastinum
Fig 21.32b Normal testicular sono-anatomy on transverse view
Fig 21.33a CD show branches of centripetal arteries which supply blood to the testicular parenchyma and the capsular arteries which located on the peripherally and enter the testis and travel toward the mediastinum
