Maximal kidney dimensions from serial ultrasonograms were measured in 10 healthy cats. Because clinical ultrasonographic examination is often performed in conjunction with excretory urography, the effect of radiographic contrast medium-induced diuresis on dimensional change also was evaluated. Although a slight, statistically significant increase in size was observed (compared with kidneys scanned without contrast medium), this increase could not be detected on the basis of visual image evaluation alone.
