State of the art. 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.

The final chapter illustrates artifacts and diagnostic pitfalls. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. Multiple small contrast-containing outpouchings are evident on excretory images. Renal and urinary tract pathology Renal parenchymal masses A variety of benign and malignant renal masses are well depicted by CTU, particularly during the nephrographic phase. These diversions may be imaged on CTU.

Ureteral strictures may be the result of prior surgery or instrumentation, stone passage, primary urothelial neoplasms, penetrating injuries, prior radiation therapy, ischemia, retroperitoneal fibrosis, endometriosis, metastatic tumor encasement, or an infectious disease e. These online bookshops xtlas us they have this item: As 3 CT scans of the abdomen and pelvis are performed in the examination, radiation dose to the patient is of concern.

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. Traumatic urogaphy to the ureter is most frequently iatrogenic, but it may result from blunt or penetrating traumatic injuries.

Skip to content Skip to search. Notes Includes bibliographical references and index. Often, stones are found at or near the ureterovesical junction, and it may be necessary to differentiate a stone lodged in the distal ureter from one that has passed into the bladder lumen and which is lying on the dependent wall.

Technique Most CTU protocols are triphasic examinations that include noncontrast, enhanced, and delayed images. After intravenous contrast injection, clots do not enhance, atlaz urothelial tumors usually do.

CT urography is useful in detecting and characterizing multiple bladder abnormalities. Calculi within the bladder appear similar to those in the upper tract and are easily seen on noncontrast images.

Each case is presented on a two-page spread, with images and succinct discussion of the entity and how CT urography was used to diagnose it. The cysts appear as multiple smooth filling defects most commonly in the proximal one-third ruography the ureter and are often seen in association with chronic urinary tract infections or stones. Case 43 Prominent normal papilla 32 junction.

CT urography: Review of technique and spectrum of diseases

One study reported a mean effective dose estimate of Continuing improvements in the spatial resolution and speed of newer CT scanners, combined with advanced multiplanar and volume-rendered image reconstruction, have made CTU a comprehensive examination whereby the kidneys and upper collecting system, ureters, and urinary bladder can be evaluated in one setting. Arteriovesical fistula from right internal.

Open to the public. Currently, CT urographic evaluation of the urinary bladder generally is not considered accurate enough to exclude small superficial urothelial tumors, and cystoscopy is indicated for complete bladder evaluation.

CT urography is well suited to detect such complications. Then set up a personal list of libraries from your profile page by clicking on your user name at the top right of any screen.

While diagnostic unenhanced and nephrographic acquisitions are relatively easy to obtain, optimal opacification and distention of the ureters during the excretory phase can be more problematic.

A variety of techniques have been proposed to improve visualization, including oral and IV hydration, diuretic administration, use of a compression belt, prone positioning, and a log-rolling prior to the excretory acquisition. What is the current role of CT urography and MR urography in the evaluation of the urinary tract?

It is important to correctly identify the type of bladder injury. Renal cell carcinoma papillary. Excretory images allow for evaluation of ahlas urothelium.
