male, 77 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Right hydronephrosis and dilatation of the proximal right ureter on delayed CECT images
     

    Delayed post-contrast axial CT section of the abdomen with the patient prone in position: there is right hydronephrosis with dilatation of the proximal right ureter

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Obstructive uropathy of the right kidney;

    Delayed post-contrast axial CT section of the abdomen with the patient prone in position: there is right hydronephrosis with dilatation of the proximal right ureter.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Obstructive uropathy of the right kidney;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Endoluminal filling defect of the right ureter

    Axial section at a lower level: a soft-tissue density lesion is seen within the right ureteric lumen (note that the patient is prone in position) surrounded by an incomplete rim of CM.

Magnified view for Figure 2, focused in the region of the right ureter. The irregular surface of the soft-tissue lesion is highlighted by the surrounding rim of CM. A relatively broad attachment surface to the ureteric wall is noted but there is no stranding of the periureteral fat.
