Abstract

An echogenic line in the outer zone of the renal medulla, paralleling the corticomedullary junction is described as the renal medullary rim sign. This renal ultrasonographic change is demonstrated in 4 dogs and 2 cats with a range of renal diseases. The renal medullary rim sign provides additional ultrasonographic criteria indicating primary renal disease in some patients. However the renal medullary rim sign may prove to be a poor correlate for prognosis across the range of differentials present in these clinical patients.
