female, 59 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Radiography

    Supine abdominal radiographs detected a round calcification in the left upper abdomen.

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: Conventional radiography;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    US
     

    Abdominal ultrasonography revealed a left renal parenchymal cyst in the upper pole, 2x2 cm, with mobile hyperechogenic material and posterior acoustic shadow.

  • Figure 3
    CT
     

    Contrast enhanced spiral CT showed a well-defined 2 cm left renal cyst abutting the renal sinus with curvilinear calcification in the posterior wall.

     
    Area of Interest: Urinary Tract / Bladder; Imaging Technique: CT;

    Prone CT scans taken 50 minutes after intravenous contrast injection, demonstrated movement of the plaque like calcific density towards the anterior wall of cyst and contrast opacification of the cyst, confirming cyst...
