male, 69 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    CT Examination
     

    Axial CT scan acquired 5 minutes after intravenous contrast medium administration. The late acquisition allows correct filling of the bladder by the contrast medium.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT Examination;

    Axial CT scan caudal to the previous image. The neck of the herniated bladder may be observed entering into the right inguinal canal. Femoral vessels run medially.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT Examination;

    Axial CT scan obtained at the level of the inguinal canal shows the herniated bladder filled by contrast medium. The pectineus muscle forming the floor of the inguinal canal may be observed.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT Examination;
