Pediatrics - Urology

In brief: Urethrogram 2 ways

Urethra filled by retrograde instillation of x-ray contrast, in males, through a foley catheter inflated just inside urethral opening or with a special retrograde urethrogram device attached to a syringe filling urethra and bladder until bladder full & patient voids.
Or in both sexes bladder filled via a catheter which is then removed & urethra then filled from below by syringe.Best urethral pics.
