FIGURE 112-137

Plain film showing bilateral calcified vasa deferentia (yellow arrows) in a diabetic kidney transplant recipient. It is important not to misidentify this anatomical finding as retained foreign bodies, stents, or other objects/devices. Note that in this specific instance, there are several other findings to confound the interpretation, including a percutaneous nephrostomy tube (purple arrow), a ureteral stent (white arrow), bilateral calcified iliac arteries (orange arrows), and a stent in the transplant renal artery (red arrow).
