Question about MSK on a CT scan?
If you are looking at a CT scan of your kidney, and they think you have MSK.  Does your Kidney look like it has holes in it on the scan? In different images, some small holes and some larger holes?  Are there different stages of MSK?

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Imaging studies will show medullary calcifications. Radioisotope uptake imaging will help to assess renal function and to show the site of renal parenchymal scarring. But the principal method for diagnosing MSK is intravenous urography (IVU), in which discrete linear papillary densities, characteristic of MSK, are seen.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
