Abstract [en]

A man fell on icy ground whilst walking to an outdoor toilet. An initial CT scan with intravenous contrast medium was negative. As the man experienced increasing pain a plain abdominal radiograph was performed 2 h later and revealed extravasation of contrast medium emanating from a ureteral injury. This case underlines the possibility that important injuries may not be visible on the initial CT scan that is often used in trauma diagnostics.
