Static-fluid MR urograms
technique was deployed, obtained with single-shot fast spin-echo techniques in 1-2 seconds.
A CT urogram
showed contrast uptake with renal parenchyma in the 'cyst'.
Thirty three urograms
showed normal outline of the urinary system while, 94 were abnormal due to calculi, cystocele, ureterocele, pelvi ureteric junction obstruction, pelvic mass and perinephric abscess.
Case 1: A 32-year-old female patient presented with a history of intermittent right side flank pain.Her urograms
revealed right hydronephrosis and a suspect RCU (Fig.
In many radiology departments, intravenous urograms
and barium enemas have disappeared from the general diagnostic division and reemerged as CT procedures.
* Intravenous urograms
. Enhanced spiral CT scans are now considered superior to the traditional intravenous pyelogram for detecting urinary stones or perirenal infections.
A 24-h urinary calcium measurement and excretory urograms
often are helpful for characterizing patients with PTH-mediated hypercalcemia.
A comparative study by Gavant, Ellis and Kleges suggests that using smaller doses of higher iodine concentration levels will produce equivalent diagnostic films for excretory urograms
. A similar study for dynamic abdominal and pelvic CT scans found no significant difference in the image quality when using 125 mL doses of ioversol 320 and 150 mL doses of iopamidol 300.
Contrast media is a solution used to enhance x-rays, CAT scans, urograms
, angiography, myelography, and intravenous pyelograms.
