  • Figure 1
    Ultrasound
     

    Ultrasound of the bladder shows: typical appearance of ureterocele

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Acceptance testing; Special Focus: Dilatation;

    Ultrasound of the left kidney (longitudinal view) shows: a marked dilatation of the renal pelvis and calyces

     
    Area of Interest: Kidney; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Dilatation;

    Ultrasound of the left kidney (longitudinal view) shows: a severe thinning of the renal parenchyma with marked dilatation of the renal pelvis and calyces

     
    Area of Interest: Kidney; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Acceptance testing; Special Focus: Dilatation;

    Ultrasound of left flank shows: a tubular anecoic structure caused by dilatation of left ureter.

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Acceptance testing; Special Focus: Dissection;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    CT scan
     

    Unenhanced CT of the pelvis (axial view) shows: a cistic structure within the bladder with relatively iperdense subtile wall

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

    Enhanced CT of the pelvis (delayed fase, axial view) shows: a cistic structure within the bladder with lumen separated from the contrast-filled bladder

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

    Unenhanced CT shows: dilatation of the double renal collecting system in left side (red arrows)

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

    Enhanced CT (delayed fase, MPR coronal view) shows: double renal collecting system in left side (red arrows). Normal aspect of right ureter (yellow arrow)

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Computer Applications-3D; Special Focus: Dilatation;

    Enhanced CT (delayed fase, MPR coronal view) shows: absence of contrast media renal excretion of left kidney by renal atrophy and the dilated distal ureter protruding into the bladder.

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

    Enhanced CT (delayed fase,3D view) shows:absence of contrast media renal excretion on left side

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Computer Applications-3D; Special Focus: Dilatation;

    Enhanced CT (delayed fase, saggital view) shows a normal insertion of ureter in the bladder (Blue arrow)
