Figure 1: Axial CT image without oral contrast agent (a) shows a structure with air-fluid-level (arrow) in the former renal bed. After oral contrast axial (b) and coronal images (c) show an air-fluid-level representing a large duodenal diverticulum.
 
Figure 2: An axial T2-weighted short-tau inversion recovery (STIR) scan during follow-up (a) shows an identical image as seen on the CT images one year before (Fig 1). The coronal T2 weighted turbo spin echo (b) correlated with the findings on the coronal CT reconstruction in Fig. 1C.
