In brief: Lower UT X-Ray
Voiding cysto-urethrogram or VCUG is an xray study of bladder and urethra.
Performed by instilling radio-opaque contrast medium, via a small caliber catheter, into the bladder. Subject then empties their bladder as the catheter is removed or around the catheter. Study is monitored by fluoroscopy. Anatomy of bladder and urethra, as well as ureter if reflux present, is demonstrated.
