Summary
This clinical trial studies ultrasound elastography in diagnosing patients with kidney or liver solid focal lesions. New diagnostic procedures, such as ultrasound elastography, may be a less invasive way to check for kidney or liver solid focal lesions.
Detailed Description
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To determine the utility of ultrasound elastography in correlation with kidney or liver biopsy or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) results.

OUTLINE:

Patients undergo ultrasound elastography.
