Specializes in Urology

VCUG: A voiding cystourethrogram (VCUG) is typically ordered by a pediatrician or urologist. Most commonly used to evaluated the lower urinary tract (bladder and urethra). Performed by radiologist injecting dye into bladder through a catheter. Commonly ordered in infants/children to evaluate febrile urinary tract infections (looking for kidney reflux), also used to evaluate urethral strictures.
