CT urography: Review of technique and spectrum of diseases

Technique Most CTU protocols are triphasic examinations that include noncontrast, enhanced, and delayed images. Calculi may form within a diverticulum because of urinary stasis. Experience with patients who have undergone cystectomy with urinary diversion, most often for treatment of bladder carcinoma,continues to increase, and CTU is commonly used for surveillance of the urothelium in at-risk patients.

Featuring qn images, this atlas is the first text on performing and interpreting CT urography.

Language English View all editions Prev Next edition 4 of 4. Urinary bladder rupture may be seen in cases of pelvic trauma, although the recommended imaging method to detect a urinary bladder rupture is a cystogram, using direct instillation of contrast into the bladder and imaging with either conventional radiography or CT.

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

In these situations, the patient can be placed in the prone position and sections through the pelvis can be repeated. Currently, CT urographic evaluation of the urinary bladder generally is not considered accurate cy to exclude small superficial urothelial tumors, and cystoscopy is indicated for complete bladder evaluation. 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.

Found at these bookshops Searching – please wait Urothelial tumors of the bladder, similar to those involving the collecting system or ureters, may have a variety of appearances. Genitourinary organs — Diseases — Diagnosis — Atlases.

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. Arteriovesical fistula from right internal. Multi-detector row CT urography in the evaluation of hematuria.

If desired, IVU-like projectional images can be created for those more familiar with these images. SilvermanRichard H.

Evaluation of the postoperative patient Superficial or noninvasive tumors are often treated locally, with cystectomy reserved for more advanced disease muscle-invasive carcinomasor recurrent, extensive superficial disease. The bowel anastomosis may leak, or a postoperative ileus or bowel obstruction may occur. Urography — methods — Atlases. 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.

Patient radiation dose at CT urography and conventional urography. What is the current role of CT urography and MR urography in the evaluation of the urinary tract?

Set up My libraries How do I set up “My libraries”? Cohan and Elaine M. Diverticula of the bladder are fairly common and appear as focal outpouchings of the bladder wall contiguous with the lumen. Most CTU protocols are triphasic examinations that include noncontrast, enhanced, and delayed images.

Diversions may be formed utilizing an isolated loop of ileum to form a conduit Bricker, incontinent diversion ; a segment of colon to form a catheterizable reservoir continent diversion ; or an orthotopic neobladder Studer pouch, continent to which the urethra is anastomosed Figure 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.

Chapters detail the indications and techniques for CT urography, review the risks of radiation exposure, show how normal urinary tract anatomy and variants appear on CT scans, and demonstrate a wide range of urinary tract abnormalities as they appear on thin-section CT.
