  • Posterior urethral valves
  • Urethral stricture
  • Ureterocele
  • Vesicoureteral reflux
  • Bladder stones
  • Bladder tumors

There is no preparation required for this exam. However, a physician's order and an appointment are required. Your doctor's office will schedule your appointment for you.
