Unusual Spontaneous Renal Calyceal Rupture Secondary to Ureteric Stricture - Literature Review and Case Report

Zahra SM Husain, MD, Alaa Ayad, Ahmet Aslan and Husham Bakry

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: December 13, 2021

Rupture of the urinary collecting system is an unusual condition caused by a variety of causes, with obstructive ureteric calculi being the most common cause. The diagnosis is often delayed due to fact that it is rarely seen in daily practice and patients exhibit non-specific symptomatology at the time of presentation. Contrast-enhanced computed tomography usually confirms the diagnosis when contrast extravasations are seen in the excretory phase. Establishing an early diagnosis is crucial to av...

A Mathematical Approach Evaluation of Dose Area Product (DAP) Using to Patients Undergoing Intravenous Urography Examinations in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Muhdin Abdo and Seife Teferi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: December 15, 2021

Patient dose evaluation is one of the quality assurance programs. Dose area product is a product of surface area of patient that exposed to radiation at the skin entrance multiplied by the radiation dose at the surface. This research focused on a dosimetry, DAP, for specific X-rays examination which is known as Intravenous Urography examination. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 145 adult patients age above 16 years examined using IVU in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia at two public and two private...

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: December 15, 2021

The fistula in ano or perianal fistula is one of the common fistulae noted in routine surgical and clinical practice. It has the tendency to reoccur even after surgery, which is due to missed pathological tract or tissue during surgical exploration. An adequate pre-surgical mapping is a necessity for giving an excellent surgical outcome and choosing an appropriate surgical technique for treating various fistulas. So, medical imaging modalities like X-ray fistulography, endoanal ultrasonography, ...
