Penetrating renal trauma (urinoma)


Viewing trauma cases whilst the patient remains on the CT table can be a useful exercise as if there is significant renal trauma, a delayed phase can be performed during the same examination instead of needing a repeat examination.

Blunt and penetrating trauma is one of the most common causes for renal leaks and urinomas. In the upper renal tract these can occur from a calyx, infundibulum, renal pelvis or ureter.
