These diversions may be imaged on CTU.

Intraperitoneal rupture requires immediate surgical alas. 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.

Multiple small contrast-containing outpouchings are evident on excretory images. Imaging of the upper urinary tract has traditionally urogdaphy the purview of intravenous IV urography, but over the last decade, computed tomography urography CTU has become the modality of choice in imaging the urinary tract.

A variety of benign and malignant renal masses are well depicted by CTU, particularly during the nephrographic phase. Cohan and Elaine M.

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. This single location in New South Wales: Opacification of urinary bladder and ureter at CT urography: CT urography is well suited to detect such complications.


Case 56 Obstructing calculi at the distal ureter. Conditions commonly referred for CTU include urinary calculus disease, hematuria, flank and abdominal pain, suspected renal or urothelial neoplasm, a variety of inflammatory conditions, and congenital anomalies of the kidneys and ureters.

When hematuria is the indication for imaging, particularly in the setting of gross hematuria, intraluminal blood clots within the bladder usually can be differentiated from urothelial tumors.

Prior to contrast administration, clots urlgraphy be of soft tissue attenuation. Homogeneous enhancement of the kidneys during the nephrographic phase optimizes small renal mass detection.

Intravenous contrast is administered and, following a to sec delay, scanning of the abdomen and pelvis is performed during the nephrographic phase.
