Ultrasound classification of renal cysts

I received an ultrasound report today with a reference to a Bosniak 1-2 Cyst. I had not previously heard of this.

  1. Bosniak classification works with CT evaluation not with US. The classification is used to help for identification of renal cancer.

  2. Interesting comments because the Bosniak classification was made in an ultrasound report. I guess this is why I had not heard of the Bosniak criteria, I rarely evaluate renal CTs for cancer. Thanks for the informative comments.
