The patients had been referred to the MRI unit for MR fistulography
Flow monitoring: performance characteristics of ultrasound dilution versus color Doppler ultrasound compared with fistulography
In all patients, direct X-rays, MCUG, fistulography
, and computed tomography of the whole abdomen, MRI, USG, and colonography with a water-soluble contrast agent should be performed to detect concurrent anomalies (6).
The tracts were also clearly seen during fistulography
(figure, C and D).
revealed a connection with the duodenal [Figure 1], but the patient refused surgery.
The diagnosis is confirmed by detection of the sinus tract extending from the sinus opening toward the anterior bladder wall by USG, fistulography
The system is a prerequisite for the implementation of basic and special radiographic examination, examination of digestive tract (including enteroklysy and irrigography), endoscopic, lateroskopick, artrografick, nephrostomies, fistulography
including complicated procedures, basic interventional procedures in the abdominal region, uroradiodiagnostick, simpler angiographic and more performances.
was not used due to a low success rate, which is about 30% .
We performed fistulography
by injecting the contrast material from one of the holes in the skin (Figure 1) under the guidance of computed tomography (CT) (Figure 2).
Speaking about various imaging modalities he mentioned Fistulography
which is unpleasant for the patient as well as for the operator.
In Pakistan fistulography
still continues to be the most commonly used investigation for detecting the course of fistulous tracts assessment of secondary tracts abscess formation and exact location of internal opening because of wide availability and cost effectiveness.
is the most direct means of visualising a fistula and should be considered when feasible.
