● Abdominal ultrasound: the most useful, non-invasive study using sound waves to look for cysts

● Abdominal CT scan: can detect smaller cysts in the kidney; uses X-rays to build a cross-section of your abdomen.

● Abdominal MRI scan: uses strong magnets to image your body to visualize kidney structure and look for cysts.

● Abdominal ultrasound: uses sound waves to see inside your body.

● Intravenous pyelogram (IVP): uses a dye to make your blood vessels show up more clearly on X-ray.

The test result is the most powerful indicator of Polycystic Kidney Disease.
