The advent of more conservative methods of treatment for renal pathologies has necessitated a precise knowledge of renal pelvicalyceal system. Knowledge on the patterns of pelvicalyceal system and its relation to the renal segmental arteries is of importance in procedures in kidney. The aim is to analyze the morphometry of calyceal system in kidney donors using 64- Slice Computed Tomography Angiography. The study was conducted in specialized scan center located in Chennai after getting appropriate permission from medical director of the center. The study group was drawn from kidney donors who approached the scan center who had no diseases related to kidney. In this study, a total of 99 kidney donors were included. This was a prospective cross-sectional study conducted from June 2014 to September 2017. The statistical analysis and plotting of graphs were carried out using Sigma stat 13.0 (Systat Software, USA). Various patterns of the pelvicalyceal system along with morphometric dimensions of the infundibulum, which leads from the major calyces to the renal pelvis were studied. The result was then correlated with clinically significant parameters.
