My 8yr old has a bladder infection and also had one when she was 2 years? Does she need a vcug?

Fever? Without a fever of greater than 101.5 degrees, most urologist do not recommend a vcug. At 8 years old, she would be better served with a dmsa kidney scan if she is getting febrile utis. This would determine whether any other testing or treatment was necessary. There are different opinions on this however, and this is a constant debate in the field of urology.
