Intravenous Urogram - IVU image

  • (Same patient as image above)
  • Following intravenous injection of contrast material, the left kidney shows normal excretion with contrast clearing normally from the ureter into the bladder.
  • On the right the collecting system is dilated.
  • Dilated calyces can be referred to as 'clubbed'.
  • The focus of calcification seen on the control KUB image is confirmed as the cause of ureteric obstruction.
