Diagnosis of Polycystic Kidney Disease For patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease, it is significant for them to receive diagnosis in time. Taking effective diagnosis will be helpful to their illness condition and recovery.

To make an exact diagnosis, your doctors will ask you something about your medical history. It usually include: your symptoms, the medications that you have taken, and a family history of any illness conditions.

In general, the following tests can help to check out the size and number of cysts as well as measure kidney function.

B Ultrasound. It is a commonly used imaging technology. Generally, if there is dark area in the kidneys it indicates the place where cysts grow. But it is hard to make an exact diagnosis in young children.

CT Scan. It is particularly suited for a quick examine to your internal organs. In some cases, CT images can be combined to create 3-D images. It combines a series of X-ray beams from different angles and create cross-sectional images of your internal organs. Then your doctor will be able to look at these slices individually.

MRI scan. During the procedure, patients should lie still in a dark, enclosed tunnel. This test can expose the body to a strong magnetic field and make internal structures, including the kidneys, visible. It is more effective than the traditional test, such as blood test and urine test.

Genetic test. Firstly we should know that this disease is an inherited disease. It can be used to identify whether his baby will develop into PKD in the future. What’s more, it can be used when someone considers donating a kidney to his family member.
