In brief: Bladder+urethra xray
Vcug is a fluroscopic xray stud to demostrate bladder + urethra during filling + voiding.
Catheter is introduced into the bladder which is slowly filled with xray contrast material, ideally with antibiotic to avoid causing a uti. Subject can hopefully urinate when bladder is full. Study demonstrates bladder + urethral abnormalities such as bladder reflux, outpouching diverticula, +voiding dynamics.
