English Abstract

Objective: To investigate the value of curved planar reformation (CPR) of unenhanced spiral CT in diagnosis of ureterolithiasis. Methods: 52 patients were examined using nonenhanced spiral CT from the top of the kidneys to pubic symphysis, and CPR was used in image postprocessing after scanning. Results: The images of CPR displayed clearly the entire course of ureter and demonstrated clearly a calculus actually within the ureter, including the stone size, shape, location and the obstruction degree of ureter in all 52 cases. Conclusion: The findings of CPR can display the entire course of ureter on a planum and is valuable in diagnosis of ureterolithiasis.
