    CT and MRI are very accurate imaging techniques in evaluating the kidneys or other retroperitoneal tumors and appreciating their IVC invasion; the radiologist is required to narrow the diagnosis by differentiating these lesions (benign/ malignant, primary/ secondary) and to assess their extension, impacting directly their staging and treatment planning. 

    We must keep in mind that IVC extension is not always the result of a malignancy, no matter how “aggressive” it may look; a gross tumor showing macroscopic fat on CT or MRI should raise suspicion of an aggressive AML.
