Abstract: Diabetic nephropathy is a common disease in clinical practice, and its incidence increases with age. Early diagnosis and discovery of diabetic nephropathy are important prerequisites for the treatment and delay of diabetic nephropathy. Ultrasonography plays an important role in early evaluation and diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy. With the development of ultrasound technology, the evaluation of diabetic nephropathy by ultrasound is generally divided into several categories, including two-dimensional grey-scale ultrasound, three-dimensional ultrasound, ultrasonic backscattering integral, color Doppler flow imaging, color Doppler energy imaging, contrast enhanced ultrasound, ultrasound elastography, etc., each of which is endowed with its own advantages and disadvantages. This article reviews the research progress of ultrasound in the diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy.
