Intrarenal Doppler US was performed in 20 patients with suspected renal obstruction and standard sonographic appearance of collecting-system dilatation. In 15 patients with true renal obstruction the resistive index (I.R.) was > 0.7. The A.A. think duplex Doppler US is a valuable addition to the standard sonographic evaluation to increase the diagnostic accuracy in patients with suspected renal obstruction.
