Abstract


This study of 100 healthy senior citizens (SC) screened out of 10,000, who attended the free medical camps. Renal morphological
parameters were assessed sonographically and correlated with age and weight of SC. The result showed significant changes after
the age of 70 years.
AIM: A retrospective study to evaluate the sonographic values of renal length, parenchymal and cortical thickness in healthy
senior citizens and to assess if renal size significantly decreases with age in healthy senior citizens free from life style diseases and
those affecting the renals.
