Computed tomography of porcine urinary bladders augmented with BAM only (a–d) and BAM seeded with ADSCs (e–h) at 3 months follow-up and control (i–l). Three-phase study with urography. Frontal, sagittal, and transverse images and 3D reconstructions show upper and lower urinary tracts. CT imaging shows the regenerated bladder wall without pathological thickening or diverticulum. CT scans of the upper urinary tract did not show pelvicalyceal system dilation or any sign of urine retention
