Normal urinary jet flow - Color Ultrasound
Title: Color Ultrasound - Normal urinary jet flow
Diagnosis: Normal urinary jet flow
Author: Dr.ROSSET Antoine
Comment: Dr. KHAN Haleem
Clinical Presentation: Rule out urinary tractobstruction.
Comment: Patients with ureteric obstruction will have asymmetricjets on Color
Doppler US. One may note a complete absence of thejet or a continuous low-level flow
may be seen from the symptomaticside. US is the screening test of choice in detecting
urinary tractstones and dilatation. In equivocal cases unenhanced CT is the nextmodality.
IVP is now rarely indicated.
Description: The Color Doppler US reveals bilateral symmetricalureteric jets in to
the bladder thus excluding urinary tractobstruction.
