Patient
male, 30 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Right Kidney Ultrasonography

    Ultrasonography of the right kidney shows a dilatation of the right renal pelvis and lumbar ureter.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Right Kidney Ultrasonography;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Intra Venous Pyelography
     

    On urography, there is complete duplication of the right pelvis and ureter. The upper pelvis is dilated with blunt calices and narrowing of the adjacent renal cortex.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Intra Venous Pyelography;

    The dilated upper pole ureter runs caudally to the normal ureterovesical junction.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Intra Venous Pyelography;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    CT scan of the abdomen

    On CT scan of the abdomen, the dilated right upper pole ureter is located dorsally to the normal site of the ostium and is seen entering the prostatic part of the urethra (arrows).

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: CT scan of the abdomen;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Urethrography

    Urethrography demonstrates during low pressure contrast injection of the urethra a retrograde filling of the upper pole ureter via an ectopic uretero-urethral junction in the posterior prostatic urethra (arrows).
