IVU (Urinary Tract Infection/VUR)

Drawing of the renal pyelocaliceal system of a normal kidney the way it is depicted in the IVU and with some modifications in the ultrasound, and in the CT or MRI. Notice the precisely marked structures of the renal pelvicocaliceal system. In the part of the drawing marked with 'impression of papilla' the pathological intrarenal reflux occurs under specific conditions. Compare with harn_34_n.jpg.
