Radiographic findings:

  • Right lateral and ventrodorsal radiographs were taken. Rounding of the caudal ventral portion of the liver. Increased mineral opacities were observed superimposed over the bladder and kidneys. Because of superimposition of bowel over the urinary bladder and kidneys it was difficult to determine origin of focal mineralizations.

  • Therefore, a compression paddle was placed over the areas of interest determining that the mineralizations represented cystic and renal calculi.

Radiographic impressions:

  • Urocystolithiasis, nephrolithiasis.

  • Primary rule outs for hepatomegaly include endocrine or metabolic disease.
