What is Nephrometry?

Nephrometry is a novel scoring system that quantifies the salient anatomy of renal masses in order to provide a useful clinical tool for: (1) guiding managment decisions and (2) more meaningful comparisons of reports in the urological literature.

Nephrometry score of  4 to 6 = low complexity
Nephrometry score of  7 to 9 = moderate complexity
Nephrometry score of 10 to 12 = high  complexity
