English translation:The crescent of healthy renal parenchyma
Explanation:
I don't think this is the crescent sign , which is applied to abnormal tissue, here the tissue is healthy.

I think it probably just refers to the shape of the remaining tissue.

The renal parenchyma can appear crescent shaped, both in transverse and coronal section
