duplicated kidney

I was told that I had a duplicted kidney on the right side.  The urologist wants to remove the duplicted kidneys, leaving me with a good kidney on the left side.  I had no problems until 5 years ago.  I have been in the hospital twice in the last 6 months.  I did not have the same urologist the second time I went to the hospital and when a ct scan was done there was no mention of a duplicated kidney.  A stint was inserted and I was ok for about 6 months.  I recently had another issue and now the first urologist wants to remove the duplicated kidney.  My question is why did the duplicated kidney not show up on the ct scan?
