Figure 8 Utricle in a 70-year-old man. (A) Axial and (B) coronal T2-weighted images demonstrate a midline, benign utricular cyst of high signal intensity (white arrow). Figure 8 Utricle in a 70-year-old man. (A) Axial and (B) coronal T2-weighted images demonstrate a midline, benign utricular cyst of high signal intensity (white arrow). diagnosed in childhood because of its association with hypospadias, cryptorchidism, and ipsilateral renal agenesis (69-71). Mullerian duct cysts arise from the...

Focal Thickening Of Postero Lateral Bladder Wall

Urinary Bladder Wall Thickening Causes

Figure 10 Caliceal diverticulum. (A) Excretory-phase axial image demonstrates a urine-contrast level in a mass in the upper pole of the right kidney (arrow). This mass had uniform water attenuation on the precontrast images. Based upon these findings, a diagnosis of caliceal diverticulum can be made. (B) This large caliceal diverticulum is also easily seen on the coronal volume-rendered 3-D reconstruction (arrow). Bladder cancers may also produce small mural nodules. These can be detected by...

Pitfalls In Image Interpretation

Mild Diffuse Cystitis

Several problems can be encountered when performing and interpreting CT urograms. Knowledge of these potential pitfalls is important so that studies can be performed with the optimal technique and erroneous interpretations minimized. Figure 13 Tiny bladder cancer. A 3 mm diameter bladder cancer projects into the contrast-containing lumen of the urinary bladder arrow , producing a small filling defect. This could not be seen on any of the 3-D reconstructed images. A variety of criteria must be...
