Resumen

HERMOSILLA M, Karina et al. MULTISLICE CT UROGRAPHY (URO-CT): ADESCRIPTIVE STUDY USING SPLIT BOLUS TECHNIQUE. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.2, pp.65-69. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082009000200004.

Multislice computed tomography provides high spatial and temporal resolution images in addition to high quality multiplanar and three-dimensional reconstructions. As a result of this diagnostic efficacy, the Computed Tomography Urography (Uro-CT) has become the technique of choice for evaluating the urinary tract, virtually replacing the traditional urography examination. At Padre Hurtado Hospital, Santiago, Chile, we conducted a retrospective analysis to review our experience with Uro-CT scanning and split bolus technique, which has the potential to yield a synchronous nephrographic and excretory phase of the urinary system, thus reducing radiation dose for patients, number of images and costs generated by MDCT urography. A series of 31 cases is presented, along with description of techniques applied as well as study main findings.

Palabras clave : Genitourinary system; Radiation dosage; Split bolus; Urography computed tomography.
