Abstract

Thirty-seven patients with pre- or perivesical lesions were examined using a conventional manual scanner. In some patients linear or sector real time scanners and in 8 patients CT scanning were also used. The lesions noted included: abscesses, phlegmon, hematoma, bladder diverticulum, and a metastatic tumor. Demonstration of the peritoneal line in the longitudinal scan is very important in diagnosing a peri- or prevesical lesion. Quite often these lesions, especially those within the perivesical space, have been mistaken for intraperitoneal lesions on the transverse scan. The problem is more likely encountered with CT scanning. Although sagittal reconstructions can be accomplished, the peritoneal line is usually not demonstrated on CT.
