1. Periureteral (Hutch) diverticulum

Figure 48-1

Periureteral (Hutch) diverticulum.

A right anterior oblique image from a cystogram shows a large diverticulum (D) arising from the posterolateral aspect of the bladder. Refluxed contrast opacifies the right ureter, which drapes around the diverticulum. There is an abnormal right-angle orientation of the ureter (arrow) at its insertion into the bladder wall.

Figure 48-2

Grading system for VUR.

Classification of the vesicoureteral reflux into 5 grades is based on the level of reflux, the severity of collecting system dilation, and caliceal morphology.

Figure 48-4

Vesicoureteral reflux.

Posterior images from a radionuclide cystogram demonstrate bilateral VUR. Reflux initially occurs into the left ureter (arrow). There is increased reflux into the right ureter during voiding (arrow).

Reflux nephropathy.

Posterior and posterior-oblique dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scintigraphy images show a small, scarred left kidney.

Endoscopic periureteral injection mound.

A longitudinal sonographic image obtained with the transducer angled to the left shows a hyperechoic mound (arrow) projecting into the base of the bladder.

Endoscopic periureteral injection mounds.

There are prominent echogenic "mounds" (arrows) at the base of the bladder on this transverse image.

Figure 48-8

Endoscopic periureteral injection mound.

A. An oblique image from a voiding cystourethrogram shows a well-defined filling defect projecting into the posterior aspect of the bladder lumen. B. A transverse sonographic image confirms the presence of an echogenic periureteral mound (arrow).
