Abstract

Excretory urography was performed in 256 dogs and 21 cats clinically suspectes of having abdominal disorders, except for the urinary system.The enlargements of the liver, spleen, uterus, prostate gland as well as the presence of intrabdominal masses appear with an increased radiographic density due to the sodiun diatrizoate contrast mediun. The best visualizations of these alterations were found in a higher frequency after 15 ninutes following the injection of the contrast mediun. These findings considerably widened the diagnostic possibilities.
