Abstract
Conventional voiding cystourethrography
(VCUG), transvaginal
sonography (TVUS), and MRI
have been used for the evaluation
of urethral diverticula [1–7]. These imaging
techniques, however, rarely identify the exact
location of the ostium of a diverticulum in the
urethra, which is the most important information
for urologists who plan surgery [8, 9].
We report our initial experiences with CT
VCUG using 16-MDCT for the evaluation of
female urethral diverticula. With this technique,
the accurate locations of the ostia of diverticula
were clearly shown, which was not
possible with conventional VCUG, TVUS, or
MRI. CT VCUG is a useful imaging technique
for the evaluation of urethral diverticula
and may replace conventional VCUG,
TVUS, or MRI for this purpose.
