Purpose: This study was undertaken to determine the accuracy of 3D ultrasound (US) in assessing renal volume, with multislice computed tomography (MSCT) considered as the gold standard. Materials and methods: Forty-nine patients (30 men, 19 women; age range 30-82 years) underwent abdominal contrast-enhanced MSCT and 3D-US performed with a 3.5-MHz 3D/4D convex-array probe. The results of the two modalities were compared with the Wilcoxon test. Variability between the two measurements was determined with the Bland-Altman method and reported in terms of bias and coefficient of repeatability (CoR). Results: Mean values obtained were 210 ml with MSCT and 192 ml with 3D-US (p
