      MORPHOMETRIC ASPECTS OF THE KIDNEYS OF NEWBORNS, CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS (Abstract): Our study was carried out on 28 people aged 6 months - 17 years, who had no kidney disease, on a GE LightSpeed VCT64 Slice CT. The length (height) of the kidney between the two poles, as well as the width and thickness of the kidney at the level of the hil, were followed. We did not find references in the studied literature to renal morphometry in children and adolescents, comparing the results obtained with renal diameters in adults found in literature. We didn’t find an increase in kidneys proportional to age. The width of the kidney determined from the renal hil represents only the width of the renal tissue, without the width of the renal sinus, in literature the width of the hil being measured between the medial and lateral edges of the kidney.
