Efficacy of tamsulosin in the medical management of juxtavesical ureteral stones. CT in this setting requires at least three times the radiation exposure of IVU and 10 times that of abdominal radiography and presents an additional lifetime risk of malignancy of 1 in Urinary kopik can come back.

This page was last edited on 7 Decemberat Disadvantages of CT An important limitation of CT is the fact that it does not permit functional evaluation of the kidneys and it is unable to assess the degree of obstruction. Despite its usefulness, uretet are some undesirable aspects koli IVU, including radiation exposure, risk of nephrotoxicity, contrast reaction and the time it takes, particularly when delayed films are required.
