The present contribution considers the diagnostic possibilities of radiological imaging procedures in the evaluation of the lymphatic and bloodborne metastases in urological tumors. As regards the evaluation of the lymph node chains the presently available imaging modalities are discussed. For each of them, diagnostic accuracy and the percentage of false positive and false negative readings are presented. For the evaluation of the bloodborne metastases, the available imaging procedures for each organ and site are reported and a diagnostic flow chart is suggested.
