In brief: Radiology test

A renal ultrasound is a diagnostic radiology test performed by an ultrasonographer or radiologist.
It uses sound waves at various frequencies to create pictures of internal organs and other parts of the body. The benefit of ultrasound is it is non-invasive and does not expose the patient to radiation.
