Congenital anomalies of the renal tract are fairly common and are usually asymptomatic. These are more often detected incidentally by various imaging modalities like ultrasound and computed tomography. Anomalies of the vascular supply of the kidneys have recently been diagnosed preoperatively due to the advent of fast imaging techniques like multislice computed tomography (MSCTA) and contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA). We present a fresh perspective on four commoner congenital renal anomalies detected by MSCTA.
