Not sure: Ct with and without xray dye is a good test for some kidney problems. Not sure what you mean by thickening. Ct shows kidney stones, masses, kidney size/location ; can give a good idea of whether the kidneys are working well. Ct is also good at showing the site of blockage of urine flow, when present.
