Abstract

A dynamic renal study revealed an immediate blush in the bladder region. This was not uterine related (previous hysterectomy). The outline of the site did not change with time as bladder filling progressed. The effect was due to a bladder relatively fixed in shape from the late effects of radiation, with probable continued vascular abnormalities within its walls.
