ROLE OF CT UROGRAPHY/CT PYELOGRAPHY

This is to highlight the importance of CT Urography in evaluating the cases of renal/ ureteric colic with equivocal signs and borderline findings on ultrasonography and intra venous urography. A small calculus can be seen in the right middle third ureter with insignificant proximal dilatation. The 3D image also increases the sensitivity and specificity of this investigation. This patient was managed with lithocast through a ureterorenoscope with satisfactory recovery.
