Jorge Daza, John P. Sfakianos

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Numerous conditions can potentially affect the urinary tract. Imaging techniques are key diagnostic tools that allow the evaluation of anatomical and functional abnormalities of some of them. In some cases, the most appropriate management is dictated by the results of such diagnostic tools. It is important that the clinician knows the role of the imaging techniques that are widely available in order to provide the best evaluation of patients. The objective of this review is to describe the role of different imaging techniques in prevalent conditions of the urinary tract and to describe different interventional diversion alternatives.
