If the tumor obstructs a calyx, the calyx may appear irregular or amputated. Congenital anomalies of the kidneys and ureters Congenital anomalies of the kidneys, including horseshoe kidney, renal ectopia with or without crossed-fusion,hypertrophied column of Bertin, and renal agenesis sometimes with a genesis or cystic dilatation of the ipsilateral seminal vesicleare all well depicted by CT urography.

Case Benign renal tubular ectasia 40 Case Obstructing distal right ureteral calculus. If the tumor arises in the calyces or renal pelvis, differentiation from a central atlqs cell carcinoma may occasionally be difficult.

While diagnostic unenhanced and nephrographic acquisitions are relatively easy to obtain, optimal opacification and distention of the ureters during the excretory phase can be uroraphy problematic. Tomography, X-Ray Computed — Atlases.

The University of Sydney. A recent study evaluating low-dose noncontrast CT for the evaluation of stone disease suggests that significant dose reductions can be realized in certain patient populations without sacrificing accuracy.

Often, the ureter draining the upper pole moiety of a duplicated system drains into an ectopic ureterocele located inferomedial to the insertion of the lower pole ureter.

Urothelial thickening often results from tumor spread. Multi-detector row CT urography in the evaluation of hematuria. Collecting system calyces, renal pelves, ureters The calyces, renal pelves, and ureters may be affected by a variety of inflammatory, traumatic, congenital, and neoplastic processes. Classically, the ureterocele of the upper pole ureter results in obstruction, while abnormal insertion of the lower pole ureter results in vesicoureteral reflux Weigert-Meyer rule.

Noncontrast images are essential in identifying calcification, macroscopic fat within a uurography, and high attenuation of hemorrhagic or proteinaceous cystic lesions; they provide the baseline attenuation necessary for assessment of enhancement. A variety of techniques have been proposed to improve visualization, including oral and IV hydration, diuretic administration, use of a compression aglas, prone positioning, and a log-rolling prior to the excretory acquisition.

Traumatic injury to the ureter is most frequently iatrogenic, but it may result from blunt or penetrating traumatic injuries. Sectra has recently registered a new Class Diverticula of the bladder are fairly common and appear as focal outpouchings of the bladder wall contiguous with the lumen. Extraperitoneal rupture, the most common type, is treated conservatively with Foley or suprapubic catheter drainage.

Noninvasive papillary transitional cell. Not only do these postprocessing techniques allow the radiologist to interact with the data to more fully appreciate pathologic changes, but they also aid in communicating findings to referring physicians.
