includes 5 and 10 minute films of kidneys and ureters during excretion and a detailed view of the right ureter on 20 minute IVU film following abdominal decompression.

Multiple, small ureteral outpouchings are observed along the course of both ureters. These, however, are most prominent in the upper part of the right ureter.
