The ball-on-tee sign, golf ball-on-tee sign, or egg in cup appearance, refers to a urographic pattern of papillary excavation that may be seen with renal papillary necrosis.
The sign occurs when contrast material fills central excavations in the papilla of the interpolar region giving a ball-on-tee appearance.
