Diversion ahead: imaging appearance of urinary diversions and reservoirs

Published:February 10, 2014DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.clinimag.2014.01.017

      Abstract

      The imaging appearance of urinary diversion is determined by the indication and type of surgical procedure performed. These patients often undergo an imaging follow-up to detect complications or recurrence. Understanding the postoperative anatomy and early detection of complications are keys to adept interpretation of radiological evaluation of urinary reservoirs. The purpose of following review is to offer a brief account of commonly used surgical techniques, relevant anatomy, and concise overview of the imaging techniques for evaluation of the urinary diversions and features of their complications.
