MORENO GRANERO, Pilar y ESTEBAN HERNANDEZ, José M.. The usefulness of URO-CT scan in the diagnosis of small urinary lithiasis: Case report. Arch. Esp. Urol. [online]. 2006, vol.59, n.8, pp.820-822. ISSN 0004-0614.
Objective: To report one case of microlithiasis diagnosed by Uro-CT scan (with multidetector CT scan). Methods: We describe the case of a middle age male patient with symptoms of renal colic and hydronephrosis without and objective cause detected on IVU who underwent CT scan. Results: The Uro-CT scan showed a 2 mm microlithiasis in the most distal portion of the left ureter with edema of the adjacent area causing obstruction. Conclusions: The Uro-CT scan is an useful imaging technique for the diagnosis of microlithiasis, which can be missed by other imaging tests.
