Bladder imaging using multidetector row computed tomography, volume rendering, and magnetic resonance imaging

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Both multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are used to evaluate the bladder noninvasively. MDCT offers fast imaging with near-isotropic data sets optimized for three-dimensional imaging, including the latest software for volume rendering. MRI provides distinctive soft tissue contrast resolution and can perform dynamic imaging without radiation exposure. This article discusses the techniques and protocols of each modality with case illustrations of their application in a range of bladder pathologies to show their respective distinct advantages and limitations.
