Voiding cystourethrogram (vcug) question--what medication is used?

Cystografin contrast: Is the "dye" used, it is introduced through a catheter and is not medication. I personally have gentamicin 80mg added to the cystografin before instillation into bladder to reduce the mild risk of causing a UTI to virtually nil.
