i had a cystoscopy, the doctor said everything is normal but we will have ct urogram, if everything is normal why the ct urogram should be done?

Evaluate other areas: Cystoscopy and cystoureteroscopy are very good at looking at the inside of the bladder, ureters and renal collecting systems. Ct urogram looks there as well, but also evaluates the "outsides" (the parts that cannot be seen with a scope) of these structure and the other structures in the abdomen and pelvis.
