Portal phase contrast-enhanced pelvic CT. Oblique coronal reconstuction where an ureteral duplicity can be seen. The upper ureter is dilated with III/IV hydronephrosis.
 
Portal phase contrast-enhanced pelvic CT. A: axial image. A low ureteral bladder insertion seems to be present. B: oblique coronal reconstruction where the lower ureteral insertion is seen. Prostate is slightly enlarged without gross calcifications.
