Patient
female, 32 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Axial CT view without CM
     

    Note the left paraortic solid mass with a small calcification within it

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Arterial phase axial image which shows the kidney structure. Note the contrast media around the calcification (renal stone)

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Late phase axial image which shows the chalice full of excreted contrast media

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial CT views with CM
     

    Note that the supranumerary kidney measurements are 28.3 mm and 33 mm

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Supranumerary kidney parenchyma and chalices are well identifiable, similar to those of normal kidneys

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    In this axial image the supranumerary kidney-feeding artery is well presented

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
     
     
  • Figure 3

    Note that the supranumerary kidney is positioned medially to left kidney, on the left of aorta

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Feeding artery of the supranumerary kidney

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;

    Note that the both gallbladders are easily identifiable with multiplanar reformation of MDCT. But it was impossible for us to do the proper classification after Boyden.

     
    Area of Interest: Biliary Tract / Gallbladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Congenital;
