Tri-phasic CT remains the mainstay imaging study for cross-sectional imaging in renal TB, which can easily detect uneven caliectasis, calcifications, or urothelial thickening.
Its medullary origin can be difficult to appreciate in cases of large masses; when the tumour is centrally located, it is often associated with caliectasis without pelviectasis.
Indication: Robotic-assisted ureterocalicostomy (RAUC) is a potential option in patients with UPJO and significant lower pole caliectasis, patients with failed pyeloplasty and a minimal pelvis, or patients with an exaggerated intrarenal pelvis.
Renal outline is typically maintained, and a filling defect with a local caliectasis is often seen.

The Doppler US jet flow with flank compression was reported as "very low," although the ureteral passages on the IVP were totally free in one patient each with a parapelvic cyst, nephrolithotomy history, extrarenal pelvis, and persistent caliectasis after stone expulsion.
Although the ureteral passages were totally open on the IVP in one case each with a parapelvic cyst, persistent caliectasis after stone expulsion, nephrolithotomy history, and extrarenal pelvis, the ureterovesical jet flow with Doppler US during flank compression was low (Table 5).
Excretory urography may demonstrate caliceal distortion, caliectasis and a non-functioning kidney, possibly caused by the mass effect of cystic lesions.
