In brief: Imaging and tissue

Ultrasound is many times the first imaging modality used, then ct scans are required for staging.
The kidney with wilms is completely removed (unless there is bilateral disease), and then a pathologist determines whether its appearance falls under favorable histology, or focal or diffuse anaplasia. All of this information will guide therapy.
