Özet

Imaging features of metastases to the urinary system may closely mimic primary urinary tract tumors, and differential diagnosis by imaging alone may be problematic or even impossible in some cases. The main purpose of this article was to familiarize radiologists with imaging findings of metastasis to the urinary system on cross-sectional imaging, with an emphasis on abdominal and pelvic computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. In addition, we review the clinical importance and implications of metastases to the urinary tract and provide information on diagnostic work-ups.
