URETEROCELE 3D IMAGES


This was a 50-year-old gentleman , who presented with recurrent lower abdominal pain to the surgeon and was referred for a scan.

He had an essentially normal appearance of the upper abdominal organs . His kidneys also appeared to be normal.

The urinary bladder showed the following :
