Renal cysts are a common imaging finding, often incidental. Ultrasound, CT and MRI are the main modalities responsible for renal cyst detection and characterization. These modalities often play a complementary role in modern radiological practice, each of them with strengths and limitations. In view of a recently proposed ‘multimodality’ update to the historical Bosniak classification, this article provides a general overview of the current imaging approach to renal cysts, and outlines some of the diverse pathologic entities responsible for renal cyst formation.
