History of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Imaging for an unrelated issue.

Patient Data

Gender: Male

Retrograde urethrogram (RUG) and voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG)

Modality: Fluoroscopy

Two retrograde urethrograms (RUG) on the same patient, the second with a voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG), show an irregular defect in the region of the prostatic urethra, compatible with the patients history of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP).

Modality: CT

CT of the abdomen and pelvis with delayed imaging shows a midline defect in the prostate compatible with a TURP defect. A 3D reconstruction shows the gap in the prostatic urethra to good effect.

Modality: MRI

Midline defect in the prostate, compatible with a TURP defect.
