Voiding Cysto Urethrogram (VCUG)
This is a test that is done by placing a small tube in the bladder through the urethra. The bladder is filled with an X-ray dye. Conditions diagnosed by a VCUG include:
- Posterior urethral valves
- Urethral stricture
- 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.
