Transverse plane (A) and reconstructed dorsal (B) and sagittal (C) plane delayed phase CT angiographic images of the abdomen of the dog described in Figure 1. The dilated intramural portion of the right ectopic ureter (white arrowheads) is evident near the normal left ureterovesicular junction (asterisk), from which a small stream of iodinated contrast medium emerges and accumulates dependently within the urinary bladder (UB). Only a small amount of iodinated contrast medium is seen accumulating within the renal pelvis (black arrowhead) of the right kidney, suggesting reduced renal function. The images are displayed in a soft tissue window (window width, 300 HU; window level, 40 HU), with a 2-mm slice thickness. A and B—The dog’s right is to the left of the images. C—Cranial is to the left.
