Answer

Answer

Angiography is now uncommonly performed, but it may be useful in the preoperative assessment of tumors in patients with a solitary kidney or bilateral Wilms tumors. Likewise, inferior venacavography is now seldom performed, as magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) and Doppler imaging studies may provide the same information noninvasively.
