female, 44 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Plain Film - abdomen - supine position -AP view

    No calcification seen

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Plain Film - abdomen - supine position -AP view;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    IVU - 3 minutes

    Small lobulated right kidney. Delayed secretion of the upper part of the right kidney. 2 rounded hypodense thin-lined lesions located beneath the renal capsule (hydrocalices or caverns ?)

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: IVU - 3 minutes;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    IVU - 7 minutes

    Phantom calix at the upper part of the right kidney related with stenosis of the infundibulum. Note loss of the normal cupping of the middle and inferior calyces (due to obstruction and/or ulceration).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: IVU - 7 minutes;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    IVU - 10 minutes

    Stenosis of the right upper infundibulum. Communication with a parenchymal cavern. Secondary displacement of the collecting system.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: IVU - 10 minutes;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    IVU - 12 minutes

    Distal stenosis of the right ureter. Subsequent uretero hydronephrosis.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: IVU - 12 minutes;
     
     
  • Figure 6
    IVU -15 minutes

    Rigid aperistaltic segment of the distal ureter
