The patient should be fasting for 4 to 12 hrs; prolonged fasting may actually result in a false positive test (ie: failure to visualize GB) due to bile shunting away from the full gallbladder. Narcotics that act on the sphincter of Oddi should be stopped 6 to 12 hours prior to the examination.

CONT

Quelle que soit la technique d'imagerie (TDM ou IRM), le diagnostic d'un stade II repose sur la mise en évidence de modifications de l'interface tumeur-graisse (limites tumorales floues et irrégulières) et de la graisse péri-rénale elle-même (présence de travées denses, aspect strié), mais ces critères sont peu spécifiques car de telles anomalies peuvent coexister avec un cancer de stade I. De plus, la non-visualisation de la capsule rénale explique la possibilité de faux négatifs en cas d'envahissement capsulaire débutant voire microscopique.
