This study analyse the performance of radiological investigation in differentiation of Renal Masses (R.M.) based on author's experience in 54 verified cases. In autor's technological conditions (Scanner and Ultrasounds absense), the procedures available for the discrimination of R.M. include only: plain radiography, urography, pyelography, nephrotomography and selective renal angiography. The discussion about the value of each procedure is conclusive; urography is a very poor method for discrimination but acceptable as a first step investigation: Renal Angiography--at this moment the better radiological method available for R.M. differentiation, will probably be replaced within a few years by Computer Tomodensimetry, because of its highest preision and innocuity.
