Mild right hydronephrosis to the level of an obstructing upper ureteric stone.
At the level of the stone the ureter is circumferentially thickened.
Left midpole renal stone.
The soft tissue rim sign occurs in the ureter in the context of a ureteric calculus. A rim of soft tissue develops around the stone which represents the edematous ureteric wall.
